TULSA, Okla. (AP) — McDonald’s is testing the use of fresh, never frozen beef for its Quarter Pounder hamburgers.

The fast food giant says the tests are being carried out in 75 of its restaurants in the Tulsa, Oklahoma-area. It says Quarter Pounders in the restaurants will be made with fresh beef that’s cooked when ordered.

Oak Brook, Illinois-based McDonald’s says it got positive feedback recently from a similar test in the Dallas/Fort Worth-area.

McDonald’s says it has making “significant enhancements” to its food. It says that over last 18 months it has removed high fructose corn syrup from its buns and stopped using margarine in favor of butter.

The company is trying to stage a comeback after losing customers in recent years, with executives conceding they failed to keep up with changing tastes.

    WOW they weren’t beef or fresh before? And people still ate it? Really! Wendy’s is 10x better you get what you pay for! Never been a Mc D’s fan anyway and cut it out 10+ years ago. They left a burger and fries out for over a month and it didnt spoil or mold hummmmmm…… thanks.

  2. Real Beef instead of those processed beef patties would be an IMPROVEMENT.

    Wendy’s has been selling only Beef burgers since their conception. About time that Mickey D’s
    caught up to them!!!!!
