The burger chain is portraying a Whopper covered in mold in print and TV ads running in Europe and the U.S.

The message: Burger King is removing artificial preservatives from the Whopper.

The chain says it’s removed artificial preservatives from the Whopper in several European countries and around 400 of its 7,346 U.S. restaurants.

It plans to remove preservatives from Whoppers served in all of its restaurants this year.

McDonald’s announced in 2018 that it was removing artificial colors, flavors and preservatives from seven of its burgers.
