NEW YORK (AP) — McDonald's is getting rid of its Chicken Selects and Fruit & Walnut Salad, as well as considering the removal of Angus burgers.

The world's biggest hamburger chain also says in an emailed statement that it is "evaluating options as it relates to the Angus Third Pounders, and their role on the national McDonald's menu."

The changeup comes as the Oak Brook, Ill.-based company continues tweaking its menu, with plans to step up the number of limited-time offers in the year ahead. Most recently, the chain introduced its "Fish McBites."

McDonald's Corp. says the Selects chicken fingers were introduced in 2004. The Fruit & Walnut Salad was introduced in 2005 and the Angus Third Pounders in 2009.
