WEIFANG, China, July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- The Audit Committee (the "Audit Committee") of the Board of Directors of Yuhe International, Inc. (Other OTC: YUII.PK) ("Yuhe" or the "Company"), a leading supplier of day-old chickens raised for meat production, or broilers, in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), today confirmed that it has engaged Loeb & Loeb LLP as counsel in connection with an independent investigation it is conducting with respect to issues relating to the Company and the status of previously reported acquisition transactions.

Although the Company's press release dated July 21 in this regard originally suggested that the Audit Committee and its advisors would be publicly reporting the results of the independent investigation to investors, the Audit Committee today confirmed that the independent investigation would proceed as is customary in such corporate investigations, with the Audit Committee reporting such results to the full Board of Directors of the Company, who will then determine the appropriate remedial steps to be taken in light of the final report. The Audit Committee will rely on the advice of its own legal counsel in this regard and act in cooperation with the Company with a view to full transparency regarding the independent investigation process. As previously reported, Loeb & Loeb LLP, is in the process of engaging a forensic accounting firm in connection with launching the independent investigation, and the Audit Committee expects to be in a position to announce this engagement shortly.
