McDonald’s is adding three new Quarter Pounders to its menu and phasing out Angus offerings as it looks to focus its attention on one of its most popular brands.

3 New Quarter Pounders!

The company says the new burgers will replace its meatier Angus third-pounders, which were among the most expensive items on its menu at around $4 to $5.

The Quarter Pounders will come in two of the same varieties as the Angus burgers, Bacon and Cheese and Deluxe, and Habanero Ranch as well.

The new Quarter Pounder line will use a bun that has eight grams of whole grains, while original Quarter Pounders will stay with their regular bun.

McDonald’s will roll out the new items nationally in mid-June.

The FBI attributed the incident to "street violence," not terrorism.

The victims were in the "second line," the name for informal street parades that wind through New Orleans behind marching bands and dancers.

The idiosyncratic local tradition has sometimes stirred debate in the famed Louisiana city, particularly after violence has marred previous events.

Michelle Knight, one of the three Cleveland kidnapping victims found alive earlier this week, has reportedly shunned her family following her rescue.

M Knight

Knight had been missing for 11 years when she was found in a dungeon-like Cleveland house with Amanda Berry, 27, and Gina DeJesus, 23.

But while the two other freed captives have returned home to cheering crowds and yards full of balloons, Knight did not enjoy a similar scenario.
