KFC has won a legal battle against tech firms in China who helped spread rumours about the fast food chain's chicken.

Reuters reported a Shanghai court fined three local tech firms after is spread doctored photos of deformed chickens and allegations the birds had six wings and eight legs.

In a statement, the Xuhui District People's Court said Yingchenanzhi Success and Culture Communication, Taiyuan Zero Point Technology and Shanxi Weilukuang Technology had "damaged KFC's reputation" and "caused it economic losses" by permitting the allegations to be posted on their social messaging accounts.

The three companies were ordered to make an official apology and fined a combined 600,000 yuan (363, 1770 GHS) though KFC owner Yum Brands had asked each company pay 1.5 million yuan in damages.

Reuters reported that KFC China brought the suit against the firms in June last year for ten accounts on a popular messaging platform WeChat where the firms spread the defamatory posts.
