As of May 1, 2007, Arby's restaurants will no longer be thinking trans fat as they will no longer serve french fries with trans fats and 75 percent of its menu items will contain less than half a gram of trans fats. Arby's is following the healthy restaurant trend to stop serving trans fats with the likes of Taco Bell and KFC in an effort to help combat the rise in obesity. Several cities are already on their way to trying to ban trans fats.
To Arby's I say, why not cut all of the trans fats? But hey, at least it's a start.
