McDonald's is announcing a new change to their menu that many people are discussing.
According to reports, The popular fast-food recently announced that they would be using fresh, made-to-order patties in their Quarter Pounder burgers by mid-2018, rather than frozen.
"Today's announcement is part of a continuing food journey for McDonald's," said McDonald's USA President Chris Kempczinski. "Delivering fresh beef that's prepared when our customers order their food is just another example of how we are raising the bar," he said.
The change is an effort from the hamburger giant to make fresher products and food in order to keep up with competitors in an industry that is becoming increasingly health conscious.
However, many people are worried about the change. By not using frozen patties, McDonald's is increasing the risk that improper food handling could make customers sick.
With the change, the company is going to have to rely even more on their employees to use proper food handling procedures and to be cautious in the way they cook the meat.
So, what do you think? Is this a good change? Should they make it or keep their business the way it has always been.
