NEW YORK (AP) - McDonald's says it's cutting the Angus burger from its menu.
The Oak Brook, Ill.-based chain had said earlier this year that it was evaluating whether to continue selling the Angus Third Pounders, which were introduced in 2009. The company also said at the time that it was it was cutting Chicken Selects and Fruit & Walnut Salad.
The changes come as McDonald's looks to keep up with shifting tastes. In a bid to attract more customers in their 20s and 30s who are looking for fresher options, McDonald's recently added chicken McWraps to its core menu. It's also stepping up the number of limited-time offers.
Without elaborating, McDonald's Corp. said in statement that the Angus burgers "may still play a future role on our menu."
