McDonald's Ditches Trans Fat from Fries

Okay, I know no one reading this blog eats French fries, or McDonald’s for that matter, but I still think its interesting to point out that even McDonald’s is rallying against trans fat. Now if we can only get them to throw the rest of their menu in the garbage. Dave Carpenter of the Associated Press reports McDonalds has selected a trans-fat-free oil for their fries:
McDonald's Corp. has finally selected a new trans-fat-free oil for cooking its famous french fries after years of testing, the fast-food chain said Monday.


While it has developed a healthier new oil, the company is still not saying when it will be used in all 13,700 U.S. restaurants. It already trails competitors in committing to a zero-trans fat oil.

Spokesman Walt Riker said the oil is currently in more than 1,200 U.S. restaurants after extensive testing, but declined to provide details on timing or locations.
Ah yes, the secret life of “healthy” oil.
