McDonald's previously used ammonium hydroxide to convert fatty beef offcuts into beef filler for burgers. Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and others campaigned for fast-food chains to stop using the pink slime.

Todd Bacon, senior director of quality systems for McDonald's, said, "We made a decision to discontinue the use of ammonia-treated beef in our hamburgers. This product has been out of our supply chain since August of last year. This decision was a result of our efforts to align our global standards for how we source beef around the world."
