Since trans fats are so bad for you and aren't considered safe to use in food it should of been banned a long time ago. People lead busy lives and aren't likely to give up the foods that have this in it. Not everyone has time to make everything from scratch. I hope the FDA does this, Americans will be healthier for it and have less heart attacks.Trans fats may be on their way out of U.S. foods.
The Food and Drug Administration has announced plans to have so-called "partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs)," which are the main source of artificial trans fats in processed foods, to be classified as food additives. That means they won't be allowed to be used in food without authorization of the FDA, which may effectively ban the substances.
