McDonalds to start selling vegan food, chips and other veggies at its restaurants
McDonalds is rolling out vegan food in some of its restaurants.
The company said it would begin selling some of the food it sells at its flagship stores in Atlanta, Nashville and Chicago in the coming weeks.
It will also begin selling its veggie burgers at restaurants in Charlotte, North Carolina and Washington, DC, in early January.
McDonalds has a history of experimenting with vegan products.
In 2012, it announced that it was expanding its vegan menu, including offering salads, soups, desserts, soupy treats and more.
In 2013, it launched the first-ever vegan breakfast menu at its main outlets, starting with its Atlanta locations and expanding to Nashville, Houston, Dallas, Miami and Philadelphia.
McDonalds said that it plans to expand the menu throughout its franchisees.
The announcement comes after a series of food recalls across the country over the last year, including recalls of more than 1.7 million ingredients.
In March, the company announced that its first-quarter profit fell 7% from a year earlier, citing a higher-than-expected cost of materials, labor and supply chain.
