Is this the next McRib? McDonald's is selling a new pork item

Following in the footsteps of its fast-food rivals, McDonald's is turning to the other white meat for a new menu offering.

The chain created a new pulled pork sandwich, according to a Twitter post from a local McDonald's that operates in Northern Indiana and Southwest Michigan.

The sandwich joins another pork offering that has been incredibly successful for McDonald's: the McRib.

It is unclear just how many restaurants will sell the new offering. McDonald's was not immediately available for comment.

Rivals have already jumped on the pulled pork bandwagon recently. Wendy's went whole hog on the meat last year with a trio of of limited-time offerings: a BBQ pulled pork sandwich, a BBQ pulled pork cheeseburger and some BBQ pulled pork cheese fries. Meanwhile, Burger King currently sells a pulled pork sandwich with onions and pickles on a hoagie bun.

Food news site Brand Eating notes the sandwich sells for two for $5 or for $5 as part of a combo meal with fries and a drink.
