PITTSBURGH, Sept. 19 (UPI) -- The Pittsburgh-based H.J. Heinz Co. announced its redesigned "Dip and Squeeze" Heinz Ketchup packets will replace the old style packets at Wendy's restaurants.

The company said the packets, which were designed to be able to be squeezed onto burgers or simply opened for dipping fries, were created after three years of development and are already available at other chains including Chick-fil-A, Smashburger and Dairy Queen, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday.

The packets, which hold three times as much ketchup as the previous Heinz design, are now being rolled out in Wendy's fast-food restaurants. McDonald's and Burger King said the packets are being tested but company officials declined to comment on the results.
