McDonald's has introduced some crazy menu items in its history . . .remember the McDLT? . . . but this might be the craziest thing they've done yet.
Yesterday, believe it or not, McDonald's started serving fresh beef.
About 3,500 McDonald's around the country rolled out fresh beef for the Quarter Pounders and other more expensive burgers yesterday, and pretty much all of the rest of its locations will join in by May.
Cheaper sandwiches like regular hamburgers will still use that nice frozen meat for the time being. And the chicken sandwiches will still use frozen chicken, the Filet-O-Fish will still use frozen fish, and the McRib will still use frozen . . . uh . . . never mind.
McDonald's made the move to try to increase the quality of their food to stay competitive with other chains like Chick-fil-A, In-N-Out Burger, and Shake Shack.
They've invested at least $60 million in making this fresh beef thing happen.
