LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) _ K-F-C's fried chicken buckets soon will
be stamped with a health message along with the famous likeness of
its founder, Colonel Harland Sanders.
The banner proclaims that its chicken has zero grams of trans
fat per serving.
The Louisville-based chain has announced that all 55-hundred of
its U-S restaurants have stopped frying chicken in artery-clogging
trans fat. It's switching to a new soybean oil believed less likely
to cause heart disease.
Sister brand Taco Bell also says its U-S restaurants have
completely switched to an oil with zero grams of trans fat. All
42-hundred single-brand Taco Bells were converted to a canola oil,
and all 14-hundred multibrand locations switched to a soybean oil.
