(CHICAGO, Oct. 14, 2021) - Next month, McDonald's USA is conducting an operations test of the McPlant™, a delicious new plant-based burger, for a limited time in eight select restaurants across the U.S.
Here are five things to know about McPlant before our small-scale test begins:
* In addition to the plant-based patty, the McPlant in the U.S. contains non-plant-based ingredients such as American cheese and mayonnaise. It's also cooked on the same grill as meat-based products and eggs. As always, guests can customize and request to hold the cheese and mayonnaise, or any other ingredients.
