The Food and Drug Administration released a proposed rule on Thursday that would ban the use of partially hydrogenated oils, also known as trans fats, in all processed foods. Concerns about heart health and bans like the one instituted in New York City in 2007 have led many restaurant chains to eliminate trans fats from their menus during the past few years.
"We plan to discuss the impact of this proposal on the industry and submit comments, and we will continue to work with our members and the manufacturing supply chain to address any new federal standards that may arise out of this process," said NRA Vice President of Industry Affairs and Food Policy Joan McGlockton.
