McDonald's Is Removing 10 Items From Their Menu In Canada Because Of COVID-19
They want to keep up social distancing in the kitchens.
Good-bye breakfast? There's another change for you to be aware of when it comes to getting food these days. McDonald's has a temporary limited menu in Canada that's now being offered because of COVID-19. There are 10 items that are no longer available for purchase.
If you're heading to a McDonald's drive-thru in Canada or ordering online for delivery, the menu will look a little different.
In a statement to Narcity, the fast-food giant said that the switch over to the limited temporary menu is to protect employees so they can continue to serve Canadians.
"To simplify operations and to support social distancing in our kitchens during this time – as well as ensuring the best possible experience for our guests – we are simplifying our menu and temporarily removing some items," McDonald's Canada said.
As of April 14, these items are no longer on the menu: McGriddles, bagels (à la carte and sandwiches), Big Breakfast, salads (entrée and side), croissants, danishes and mini-chocolatines, and cones.
On top of those, the fried egg Big Breakfast and toast are no longer available in Quebec.
If locations across the country still have the products that are no longer on the menu, they'll continue to sell them while supplies last.
You can still get McDonald's staples like egg McMuffins, Big Macs, fries, wraps, and chicken McNuggets as those haven't been removed.
The fast-food giant will frequently be evaluating the situation and could have to make more changes.
There is no timeline for how long the temporary menu could be in place for but McDonald's Canada is looking to move back to the regular menu as soon as possible.
An employee at a downtown Ottawa location recently tested positive for COVID-19.
One location in Toronto was seen with a bunch of paper bags on the floor ready to be filled with orders in anticipation of a busy McDelivery night.
A McDonald's Canada spokesperson told Narcity that the bags on the floor were discarded.
You can still get your fix with the drive-thru and McDevliery at participating locations across Canada.
