CSPI Recommends Avoiding Fried Foods at Burger King & McDonald's Until Frying Oil No Longer Partially Hydrogenated

With separate announcements this week, Burger King and McDonald's clearly see the handwriting on the wall: partially hydrogenated oil, which has been causing tens of thousands of fatal heart attacks annually, is on its way out of the food supply. That process will be accelerated by city and state laws, like New York City’s, which bar restaurants’ use of artificially produced trans fat, and possibly by lawsuits, like the one CSPI filed against KFC. Eventually, the Food and Drug Administration may even revoke its approval for partially hydrogenated oil once and for all. By Michael F. Jacobson. .
