Probably one of the biggest headlines recently has been KFC's announcement to ban trans-fat from their deep friers. Instead, they will begin using a zero-trans-fat soybean oil to cook their famous Original Recipe fried chicken.
As recently as Nov. 29, 2006, the Arby's fast food chain jumped on the bandwagon with similar policy changes. The USA Today story reports Arby's CEO's falling in line with other executives from Taco Bell and Wendys as the fight for America's health wages on.
Web sites and blogs have brought together a coalition of health concious consumers willing to battle it out against food manufacturers. BanTransFats.com is a notable one.
