McDonald’s to offer chicken wings

Updated: 2013-08-26T18:24:10Z

McDonald’s Corp. plans to introduce bone-in chicken wings across the U.S. next month as the company revamps its menu.

The Big Mac seller will start the Mighty Wings rollout Sept. 9, have the items in all U.S. stores by Sept. 24 and keep them on sale until the end of November, a company spokesman said. The company tested the wings in Atlanta and Chicago.

While the chain recently removed Angus third-pounder burgers from its bill of fare, it also has added egg-white breakfast sandwiches and chicken McWraps. Competitors including Popeyes, owned by AFC Enterprises Inc., and Wendy’s Co. also have introduced new chicken items.

Garlic option

Subway plans this weekend to roll out a new option for its sandwiches — garlic bread. While garlic bread will be introduced as a limited-time offer, if it’s a hit, it could be added to the permanent menu, the company said. The garlic bread, which be in available starting Sunday, will be made fresh daily at its stores. The company already offers five breads on its permanent menu.

Cookie dough recalled

ConAgra Foods Inc. is recalling some Kroger’s Break `N Bake chocolate chip cookie dough packages, because they contain peanuts. ConAgra says peanut butter cup cookie dough was inadvertently packed into the packages, posing a danger to people with peanut allergies. No illnesses have been reported so far.

The recall is limited to 16 ounce packages of Kroger’s Break `N Bake Chocolate Chip cookie dough with the unit UPC code “11110 87530” and the use by date “24NOV13C21.” The company advised consumers to return the cookie dough for a full refund.
