McDonald's?has become the latest fast food company to launch a new vegan option: McVegan nuggets.
麦当劳是最新一家推出新的素食选择的快餐公司,新品叫做麦素鸡块。

The plant-based offering is currently being offered in some of its Norway outlets.
目前,该公司在?#39184;?#30340;一些门店正在提供这种素食产品。

A spokesperson for the global fast food chain confirmed that the vegan nuggets are made with mashed potato, chickpeas, onion, carrots, and corn.
这家全球快餐连锁店的发言人证实,素食鸡块由土豆泥、鹰嘴豆、洋?#23567;?#32993;萝卜和玉米制成。

They're then coated in a layer of breadcrumbs and fried until crispy, making them look and feel just like regular chicken nuggets.
然后裹上一层面包屑,炸至酥脆,让它们看起来和感觉起来就像普通的鸡块一样。

It's not the first vegan product on McDonald's ever-expanding menu though.
不过,这并不是麦当劳菜单上的第一款素食产品。

The fast food company currently offers customers soy-based McVegan burger in Finland and a McFalafel in Sweden.
这家快餐公司目前在芬兰为顾客提供以大豆为基础的麦素食汉堡,在瑞典为顾客提供麦沙拉三明治。

In January, McDonald's released a vegan-friendly Happy Meal in the UK which includes a Spicy Veggie Wrap made from red pesto, sweetcorn, and breadcrumbs.
今年1月,麦当劳在英国推出了一款素食者友好型的“快乐套餐”,其中包括用红香蒜沙司、甜玉米和面包屑做成的辣味素食卷。

The wrap came under scrutiny earlier this year when McDonald's customers across the UK claimed they found chicken inside what they thought was a vegetarian option.
今年早些时候,英国各地的麦当劳顾客都说他们在这款卷里发?#33267;?#40481;肉,而他们本以为这是素食食品的,这款辣味素食卷随后受到?#25628;细?#23457;查。

Some people claimed to have been vegetarians their whole lives, and were?distraught?at having felt duped into eating meat.
有人称他们一直以来都是素食主义者,为自己居然?#40644;?#21507;肉而糟心。

At the time, McDonald's issued an apology expressing their "disappointment" at any mistakes that might have been made in their kitchens.
当时,麦当劳发表了一份道歉声明,对他们在厨房里可能犯下的任何错误表示“失望”。

"We have a number of procedures in place to avoid inaccurate orders," the company stated.
该公司表示:“我们有一套合理的流程来避免订单出错。”

"After we saw that mistakes were being made, we introduced a number of additional measures in our kitchens and communicated with all stores to reduce inaccuracies quickly and effectively.
“在我们发现错误后,我们在厨房采取了一些额外的措施,并交代所有门店快速有效地减少错误。”

"We are disappointed that mistakes are still being made. We never want to disappoint customers, and any inaccuracy is not good enough."
“我们对仍然在出错很失望。我们不想让顾客失望,任何失误都说明不够优秀。”

Vegan offerings have surged in popularity in recent years, with Greggs making headlines most recently for the advent of its vegan sausage roll.
近年来,素食产品越来越受欢迎,格拉斯哥最近因推出纯素香肠卷而上头条。
