Update: The California Trans Fat Ban took effect January 1, 2010.
The “Govenator” is terminating trans fats!
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed legislation banning the use of trans fats in the state’s restaurants. The ban will be “phased in” in 2010. California will be the first state to ban unsaturated fats, which raise the risk of heart disease, while cities like New York and Philadelphia have passed similar legislation.
