Well folks, it looks like fast food America is finally taking note. Fast food giant McDonald’s has finally made the switch to trans fat free oil after several years of testing.
The chain burger restaurant made an announcement Monday saying that they are unsure when the new zero-trans fat oil will be used in all of its 13,700 locations but they face a July 1, 2007 deadline if they are to continue to do business in New York City.
Walt Riker, a McDonald’s spokesman, revealed that the new oil is currently being used in 1,200 U.S. chains, but Riker did not provide details regarding timing on other locations.
“We can confirm that we’ve got the right oil. We’re phasing it in,” Riker stated.
When asked if the famous fries would remain famous, the spokesman added, “We’re very confident in our test and taste results. … We’re very confident in what we’re hearing back from our customers.”
I guess we’ll have to preform our own McDonald’s fry taste tests, although I’ll be a bad judge from the start, as I’ve never really cared for them myself.
You tell me- Do you like McDonald’s french fries?
