McDonald's to switch to fresh beef in its Quarter Pounders

They point out that freezing their product is a good way of killing pathogens like E. coli, and that using fresh beef increases the risk of possible contamination. Yet there are larger forces at work that have prompted other menu changes at McDonald's, known for decades more for the billions of people that it has served, rather than its culinary choices.

The recipe change comes amid McDonald's ongoing effort to improve its image as costumers continue to move away from eating processed foods.

While McDonald's spokeswoman Becca Hary pointed out that prices will ultimately be set by franchise owners, she stated that the company did not expect consumers to feel much burden.

This move means that the patties will never be frozen as they will arrive fresh to make on that same day.

The company began testing the fresh beef initiative in 325 restaurants across the Dallas/Fort Worth area and 77 restaurants in Tulsa, Okla. The Oak Brook, Illinois-based company also said earlier this month that it would offer more delivery in the U.S., eyeing what it sees as a S$100 billion (S$139 billion) market.
