McDonald’s fries still not vegan

I have stayed away from them because I thought they were cooked in beef tallow (and because they simply aren’t healthy of course). They stopped doing that but now they have added milk derivatives! The current ‘natural beef flavor’ is made from wheat and milk. Here is the ingredient list I pulled from mcdonalds.com:

Potatoes, vegetable oil (canola oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, natural beef flavor [wheat and milk derivatives]*, citric acid [preservative]), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (maintain color), salt. Prepared in vegetable oil (Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil with TBHQ and citric acid added to preserve freshness). Dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent.
CONTAINS: WHEAT AND MILK.  
*(Natural beef flavor contains hydrolyzed wheat and hydrolyzed milk as starting ingredients).
