Trans Fat Is Now Banned In California Restaurants.

Newport Harbor

A new law went into effect on January 1, 2010.  California became the first state to ban Trans Fat in restaurants.  I certainly don’t need Trans Fat, also known as Partially Hydrogenated Oils, but have a big problem with the government telling restaurant owners what they can and cannot use/serve in their respective food businesses.  It’s like rewriting a chef’s recipe.  Responsibility is with oneself.  There are more important issues to be tackled by local and federal government, which are blogged about elsewhere.  This is supposed to be a happy place. 🙂

    Your responsibility to yourself controls what you feed to yourself. As to what you feed to OTHERS, i.e., customers in a restaurant, the Gov’t has a right to control that for the safety of individuals, and benefit to society.
