OAK BROOK, Ill (AP) — McDonald's has lost its taste for Heinz ketchup. The fast-food giant says it is cutting ties with the condiment company after 40 years because of management changes there.

A former Burger King CEO became head of Heinz in June after the company was bought by Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway and 3G Capital. 3G also controls Burger King.

The impact of the change might be tasted more overseas. In the U.S., McDonald's uses Heinz products only in Pittsburgh and Minneapolis restaurants.

"As a result of recent management changes at Heinz, we have decided to transition our business to other suppliers over time," McDonald's Corp. said in a statement on Friday.
