McDonald's Gets Rid of Artificial Preservatives in Several Items

McDonald's has removed artificial preservatives from several items that make up their menu, including their pork sausage patties and omelet-style eggs.

The affected patties and eggs are commonly found on the chain's McGriddles, Bagel, and Biscuits breakfast sandwiches but also includes the scrambled eggs on their breakfast platters.

Additionally, they've removed artificial preservatives from Chicken McNuggets, which they've recently touted and marketed as new Chicken McNuggets with no artificial preservatives, flavors, or colors.

McDonald's is also rolling out new buns that are no longer made with high fructose corn syrup. The change affects the buns for Big Macs, Quarter Pounders, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, Filet-O-Fish, and McChicken sandwiches. The Artisan roll launched in 2015 is not affected by the change as was not made with high fructose corn syrup in the first place.
