McDonald's has, of course, been the target of criticism over its ingredients. The president of McDonald's USA told The New York Times the fast-food chain is trying to talk more openly about its food in order to change customer attitudes.

The company announced Monday it had met its goal of no longer using chicken raised with antibiotics a year earlier than planned.
