  • New York City Bans Trans Fat in Restaurants

    NYC: No trans fats in restaurants as of July 1

    Mon Jun 16, 11:56 AM ET

    NEW YORK - Unhealthy trans fats in restaurant food? Not in New York City.

    Eateries must remove artificial trans fats from all menu items by July 1.

    When first implemented last year, the Health Department ban applied only to fry oils and spreads. It now will also include baked goods, frozen foods, cannoli and doughnuts.

    Foods served in original, sealed packaging — such as candy and crackers — are exempt.

    The Health Department says that, as of last month, about 98 percent of inspected restaurants were in compliance.

    Some food chains and cooking oil manufacturers also have reduced saturated fat by 20 to 35 percent in certain fried foods.

    First they take all the smut out of Times Square. Then smoking. Now Trans Fat?

    I'll vacation elsewhere.

        It'll hurt some of the cooking, but I'd still recommend going there.

            I can see the smut and the smoking but to bar hefty girlie-men is a step over the line.

              Sounds like even more "Big Brother" to me. Not a good thing.

                    All that's going on in the world, it's damn important we take these extra steps to protect people from themselves.

                      Can't smoke. Can't eat bad food. We're about a year away from government-mandated treadmill work.

                        Wouldn't it make more sense to just ban fat people from going out?
                        On my mind: How can I shut up the singing English graduate student? How many more lossess will KU's basketball team have than its football team? How will the Rams front office screw up this year?

                          It is sad that you would need legislation to get Moon to stay home with you for an evening.

                            now if we can pass a law to regulate coffee's temperature.
