ONTARIO, Canada (KGO) -- McDonald's is joining a growing list of fast food restaurants in experimenting with plant-based meat.

Starting Monday, a select few McDonald's customers can try what's being called a "PLT" burger - that's plant, lettuce and tomato.

The patties are being provided by Southern California-based Beyond Meat.
