Another Hit Put Out on Trans Fat

The Associated Press is reporting that Los Angeles wants restaurants to start voluntarily phasing out trans fats. Wow, trans fat has really become public enemy number one. More from the report:
The voluntary plan is supported by restaurants, said Andrew Casana, spokesman for the California Restaurant Association.


"I haven't received one call from a restaurant saying it doesn't want to make a change," Casana said. "I get more phone calls a day from restaurants that say they've never used it."

Charlotte Austin-Jordan, who runs an M&Ms Soul Food near downtown, said her restaurant eliminated trans fat four years ago.

"It's a health issue that restaurants can't ignore," she said.

Good to see the progress in broader society...though, it is a bit odd that people are soo freaked out about trans-fat, but still have no concerns about serving t-bone steaks, fries and ice cream on their menus!

baby steps I know....
