OAK BROOK, Ill. — McDonald’s says by the middle of next year, all its Quarter Pounders will be served with fresh — not frozen — beef and cooked fresh to order.

McDonald’s tested the “fresh beef” concept at hundreds of its restaurants in Oklahoma and Texas.
Now the concept will spread to a “majority” of McDonald’s restaurants. Alaska and Hawaii won’t make the switch for logistical reasons.
The company CEO says the move is part of McDonald’s plans to offer a better experience for customers, but the announcement had some people on Twitter wondering what they’ve been eating all this time.
