Quarter Pounder

McDonald's has switched to fresh beef Quarter Pounders, rather than using frozen patties. Currently, 3,500 of its restaurants in the U.S. are using the fresh beef and plans to expand to more locations by May.

One year ago, McDonald's pledged to have fresh beef in a majority of its stores by mid-2018. This is the latest improvement that the company has taken to its iconic menu within the last few years.
