See the new menu, with calorie counts What do you think of the menus?
NEW YORK (WSYR-TV/AP) - McDonald's locations in Syracuse are posting calorie counts on menus at restaurants ahead of a new regulation that will require the information.
The world's largest hamburger chain announced Wednesday that the chain would be making the change nationwide next week. However, the new menu with calorie listings is currently up at McDonald's on Erie Boulevard.
The company says it's making the change as it tests healthier menu items.
For example, McDonald's Corp. says it's testing an Egg McMuffin that's made with egg whites and a whole grain muffin.
It's also testing versions of the McWrap, which are already sold in Europe and clock in at less than 350 calories. And the chain says it will offer more seasonal fruits and vegetables through its limited-time offers.
President Obama's health-care overhaul will require chains with 20 or more locations to post calorie counts as early as next year.
