• Rising beef prices lead to the demise of McDonald's Angus burgers

The one-third pound Angus burgers will no longer be a part of McDonald's menus in the U.S. as beef prices rise higher than ever, according to NBCNews.com. In fact, NBCNews.com reported that the U.S. Department of Agriculture's wholesale beef market report this morning showed choice beef carcasses rising 24 cents per hundred pounds above the previous record of $204.67 hit late on Wednesday, to a record $204.91 per cwt.

The company had said in March that it was thinking about removing the "premium" Angus burgers, introduced in 2009, to make room for other food options.

"While these burgers will no longer be available in our restaurants, they may still play a future role on our menu," spokeswoman Danya Proud told NBCNews. Angus snack wraps also are no longer available.
