At the end of October KFC announced the biggest concession yet in the fast-food industry against hydrogenated fats. KFC have promised to remove trans-fats from their cooking oil and replacing them with “zero grams” oil in all 5,500 U.S. outlets by April 2007. However a deadline has not been set for any of the 711 outlets in the U.K. McDonalds has to date made no commitment to remove trans-fats, however, it has said its European restaurants will begin using cooking oils that cut trans-fat levels to no more than 2%. U.S. outlet Wendy’s has removed trans-fats from it fries and chicken.
