Our Commitment to Quality

Our Commitment to Quality

At McDonald's, we take great care to ensure that what we serve every day is safe, of great quality and produced in a responsible way. That means we use 100% real beef patties seasoned with just a pinch of salt and pepper. It means our Egg McMuffin® is made with a freshly cracked egg. And, our Filet-O-Fish® is made with 100% whitefish sourced from sustainably managed fisheries. It means we use whole chicken thigh in our McSpicy® and our chicken.

We know you care about the food you eat.

That's why we use quality ingredients like 100% beef patties with no preservatives, fillers or additives. Take a deep dive into McDonald's ingredients to find out what makes our food delicious.
