FAST FACT: THE MCDONALD'S BIG MAC

IN 2004, MCDONALD'S ACKNOWLEDGED THAT THEY HAD LOST THE RECIPE FOR THE BIG MAC SPECIAL SAUCE. AS IT TURNS OUT, MCDONALD'S CHANGED THE ORIGINAL SPECIAL SAUCE RECIPE TO CUT COSTS AND LOST THE ORIGINAL. WHEN A RETURNING EXECUTIVE WANTED TO BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL SPECIAL SAUCE, NO ONE COULD FIND THE RECIPE. THE EXECUTIVE REMEMBERED THE NAME OF THE CALIFORNIA COMPANY THAT SUPPLIED THE SAUCE 40 YEARS AGO. THEY STILL HAD THE SAUCE IN THEIR RECORD BOOKS, AND MCDONALD'S WAS ABLE TO RECOVER THE RECIPE.
