Trans fats banned in restaurants

The city's ban on trans fats in restaurants takes effect today. That means all city restaurants will have to switch to oils that use less than half a gram of trans-fat per serving for frying or in spreads. Violators will be fined.

Restaurants have until next year to remove trans-fats from baked goods, prepared foods, and oils used for deep-frying dough.

Another new rule also takes effect today, requiring restaurants to publicly display the calorie content of a meal as prominently as its price. But it only applies to chain restaurants with standard portion sizes that already offer nutritional information.
