Wal-Mart: Trans-Fat Out

Before you know it, trans-fat is going to be a collector’s item. More and more retailers and restaurants are giving it the boot, and now Wal-Mart is the latest to nix trans-fat. Reuters reports:
The switch to the healthier oil affects more than 2,400 delicatessen locations within Wal-Mart's Supercenter and Neighborhood Markets in the United States. While food selections vary from store to store, anything fried on-site at the delis will use the trans-fat-free oil, the company said.

The switch started in January and is now complete, Wal-Mart said.

Wal-Mart's announcement follows similar moves by restaurant companies, including Wendy's International Inc., Yum Brands Inc.'s KFC and Taco Bell chains and Starbucks Corp..
