    Default KFC jumping on the diet bandwagon

    The new American evil, trans fatty acids:

    http://articles.moneycentral.msn.com....aspx?GT1=8618

    Colonel Sanders is putting America on a diet.
    KFC, a unit of Yum! Brands, announced today that it will switch to a cooking oil with no trans fat in all its U.S. fried-chicken restaurants by April 2007.
    KFC joins hamburger chain Wendy's International in a move to cut its use of the artery-clogging oil at a time when fast-food restaurants have come under criticism that their food contributes to obesity.
    The Cheesecake Factory chain also made news this summer when it announced that it was testing a trans fat-free menu in its Los Angeles stores.
    Fast-food chains are scrambling to avoid a legal and popular backlash against the cooking fat.
    The Center for Science in the Public Interest sued KFC earlier this year, claiming the food chainís use of cooking oil containing trans fat is unhealthy. (CSPI said today that it applauded the KFC move.)

    McDonald's paid $8.5 million last year to settle a lawsuit over artery-clogging trans fat in its cooking oils, agreeing to donate $7 million to the American Heart Association and spend an additional $1.5 million to inform the public of its trans-fat plans. Krispy Kreme's cautionary tale

    Anyone who doubts the impact of diet fads on company performance can look at the history of one-time stock-market darling Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.

    The doughnut maker went public with much fanfare in 2000, but then watched its stock plunge 75% in 2004 amid a low-carb Atkins craze.
    Krispy Kreme shares, which once traded as high as $39.74, were up almost 1% at $9.89 this morning.

    the words "KFC" and "dieting" are absolutely mutually exclusive under any circumstances IMO.

    Didn't they change their name from Kentucky FRIED Chicken to KFC because they thought having 'fried' in the title would put people off? Even though its still FRIED,

    ^^Actually (and this is an inside scoop) it was changed to reflect a more correct term for the chicken. KFC does not stand for 'Kentucky Fried Chicken"..it stands for "Kentucky Fecal Chicken"

    Fecal Chicken. Delicious!

    I shudder every time the commercial for "famous bowl" airs. MMM, instant mashed potatoes covered in gravy, corn, fried fecal chicken, corn and cheese. It's an experiment at the kids table at Thanksgiving not something people are interested in buying.

    Fecal - feces
    Drive a car, drive a boat, drive a plane. What does it matter? As long as I'm drunk!

    Big fucking deal ... their crappy products are still loaded with fat, salt, cholesterol, and god-only-knows how many carcinogenic additives and preservatives. The stuff barely classifies as food and cannot by any stretch of the imagination be called healthy. Same goes for McDeath, Wendy's, Burger King, and every other fast food joint on the planet.

    I don't think switching to a trans-fat oil is gonna make KFC "chicken" nay healthier. I mean the sewer rat...er I mean "chicken" is going to be doused in flour and salt and manufactured spices anyway. What's hte point?

    That's what I thought when I saw this on the news yesterday. Whether trans-fat or not, chicken is still fried in oil, too.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.
