CSPI Salutes KFC for Trans-Fat-Free Chicken

30 April 2007. KFC has now completed its conversion from partially hydrogenated frying oil to heart-healthy soybean oil, and now KFC’s fried chicken is trans-fat-free. This is a big, bold move by the company, and whether it’s due in some small part to our litigation or not, we welcome it with open arms. KFC’s fried chicken still has some saturated fat and way too much sodium, but being trans-fat-free, it is much healthier for hearts and arteries.

Anheuser-Busch's "Spykes" Labels Illegal, Group Says

16 April 2007. The government-required health warning labels on Spykes, the controversial shot-sized malt liquor drinks produced by Anheuser-Busch, are unreadable, and the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) is calling on the federal government to seek civil penalties against the brewer. CSPI had previously called on Anheuser-Busch to cease marketing the drinks, which it says are clearly designed to appeal to underage drinkers, and had called on state attorneys general to investigate.
