Ah I just noticed the above comment from Praveen

Expected fix: Remove aria-selected attribute from the menu item.

In that case @andy-blum can we instead use selected attribute instead of aria-selected? We can then change the style to use the selected attribute.

I believe we initially added the aria-selected attribute because we needed to indicate to screenreaders that the menu item had selected styling. So I would hesitate to remove it without checking with our accessibility QA team. I will bring this up to them.
