Correcting character codes in AutoBlog

When AutoBlog pulls posts into my site it converts quotes to numeric characters which causes bad behavior with some of my plugins.

Example:

<p>“Health officials in China confirm that on Sunday, a second man died from the H5N1 virus in less than a month. In late December, the country reported its first case of the deadly disease in humans since 2010.”</p>

Anyway to correct this issue? Thx

Interestingly, the comment converted the content to quotes proper quotes it was

[&#8220];

Remove the brackets (if that works?
