Sad times for lovers of McDonald’s Signature Crafted Recipes. They are going away to the big burger barn in the sky. So long Mushroom & Swiss, see you around Bacon Smokehouse. The chicken versions are doomed too! But, say hello with all your affection to the new improved Quarter Pounders!

"Our customers have said they love our fresh beef*. With our new Quarter Pounder®** Deluxe and Quarter Pounder®** Bacon, we’ve introduced even more ways to enjoy the classic burger toppings they know and love, now on the fresh beef* Quarter Pound patty. Based on their feedback, we’ll move away from the Signature Crafted Recipes line on our national menu.
