SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Yum Brands Inc (YUM.N) on Friday said it would strengthen oversight of its China supply chain after it severed ties with supplier OSI China following a food safety scandal.

Yum, which owns KFC and Pizza Hut restaurants in China, said on its microblog it would require suppliers to install monitoring equipment in their production facilities, improve scrutiny during unannounced visits and introduce an incentive system for whistleblowers.
