McDonald's Australia has confirmed to BuzzFeed News that the Australian branches of the fast food giant will not be changing their McNugget recipe, unlike American stores.
McDonald's America began testing new, preservative-free nuggets in 140 stores across Oregon and Washington in early March.
A spokesperson for McDonald's Australia said the trial was only in a small number of restaurants, and that there is no clear plan to extend beyond the U.S at this time.
"This trial is in a small number of restaurants. We'll continue to assess customer feedback before determining if it will extend beyond the U.S," the spokesperson said.
