McDonald’s Is Making A Major Change To Some Of Its Quarter Pounders

For the longest time, McDonald’s has been known for using frozen meat patties for its signature burgers. However, in the coming months that perception may just change. According to several news reports, the chain is testing fresh beef in 75 locations in Oklahoma.

The chain had begun testing fresh beef in May in restaurants in Dallas and following the tests’ successes, they’re now expanding to more locations.

The fresh beef will not be used in all McDonald’s items; rather, it is only being used to make Quarter Pounder burgers. The Quarter pounder burger has a 4.25 ounce beef parry, pickles, raw onions, ketchup and mustard.
