Out to Get KFC
Watch out! The Food Police are at it again. This time they are after the Colonel.
A doctor and a consumer group have sued KFC in an effort to stop the chicken chain from cooking with high-fat partially hydrogenated oil. Dr. Arthur Hoyte, a retired physician from Rockville, Md., and the Center for Science in the Public Interest, want a judge to order Kentucky Fried Chicken to use other types of cooking oils or make sure customers know about trans fat content immediately before they make a purchase
How about exercising your free will and not eat at KFC, if you don't like the oil they use for cooking? Holy cow! Everyone knows that the food at KFC has a ton of calories and not particularly healthy.
Hoyte said he is suing to force KFC to change its cooking practices "for my son and others' kids, so they may have a healthier, happier, trans-fat-free future."
Why in the hell should KFC change their product? If you want a healthier, happier future, eat at home. Dr. Twit, if KFC wants to fry their chicken in Pennzoil, it'd still be their business and your choice not to eat it.
