Trans Fat Begone

LISTENINGTrans Fat begone! This summer, The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) named Long John Silver’s Big Catch with Onion Rings the “Worst Restaurant Meal in America.” It delivered 33 grams of trans fat—sixteen times the American Heart Association’s recommended daily maximum!

CSPI asked us  to tweet to @LongJohnSlvrs or email its CEO asking the company to stop using artificial trans fat and change to a healthier oil. Our message reached over 14 million people on Twitter, and Long John Silver’s received 1,649 messages.

Today, Long John Silver’s announced it will transition away from using partially hydrogenated oil to fry its products. By the end of the year, all of the chain’s locations will be free of artificial trans fat.
