McDonald's this week declined use of the world's first genetically-modified apples — Arctic Apples. According to Food Safety News, McDonald's was joined by Gerber in rejecting the genetically-engineered apples, pending approval by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Because of the genetically modified process, the apples don't brown after sliced.

McDonald's said in a statement that it has no "current plans to source the Arctic Apple variety." Apple slices currently sold by the chain are soaked in lemon juice and calcium ascorbate to stay as fresh for as long as possible.
