Global sales fell 2.2% at McDonald’s in November as the US market continues to soften and it contends with ongoing difficulties from a food safety scandal in China.

The fast-food giant said the drop in global sales at locations open at least 13 months included a 4.6% decline in the US and a 4% fall for the unit that includes the Asia-Pacific region, the Middle East and Africa.

McDonald’s Asian business has been trying to bounce back since the summer, when a TV report in China showed workers at one of its suppliers repackaging meat that was alleged to be expired. The claim has not been publicly confirmed by the supplier or the government.

Illinois-based McDonald’s said comparable sales for Europe fell 2%.
