McDonald's Removing Items From Menu
NEW YORK -- McDonald's will trim down its menu by removing Chicken Selects and the Fruit & Walnut Salad, according to the Associated Press.
The Oak Brook, Ill.-based fast food giant is also "evaluating options as it relates to the Angus Third Pounders, and their role on the national McDonald's menu," it said in an e-mailed statement.
Chicken Selects, premium chicken breast strips that serve as an alternative to Chicken McNuggets, were added to the menu in 2004, followed by the Fruit & Walnut Salad in 2005 and Angus Third Pounders in 2009.
The most recent menu changes come after last month's announcement that McDonald's will change its Dollar menu, adding its first new product, Fish McBites, along with burgers, chicken entrees and breakfast items that are currently performing well in test markets, as CSNews Online previously reported.
McDonald's also stated it plans to remodel stores and extend operating hours around the world.
