NEW YORK (AP) — Chick-fil-A says it's removing high-fructose corn syrup from its white buns and artificial dyes from its sauces and dressings as part of a push to improve the ingredients in its foods.

The fast-food chicken chain says the reformulated buns are being tested in about 200 Georgia locations, while the sauces and dressings will be tested starting early next year.

It says it also removed a yellow dye from its chicken soup and that the new recipe should be in all restaurants by the end of this month.

The chain is also testing a new peanut oil, with hopes of a rollout early next year.

And if they could, Chick-fil-a would remove marriage equality rights of all people who love each other based on sexual orientation.

Sixteen states now have equal marriage rights for all.

Eat more beef.
