(PCM) The U.S. Food And Drug Administration has issued a statement that health advocates have been waiting for, for years. After many extensive studies about the use of trans fat or partially hydrogenated oils, the FDA has deemed them to be unsuited for human consumption and now manufacturers have three years to remove them from their products.
In their statement the FDA says “The FDA’s action on this major source of artificial trans fat demonstrates the agency’s commitment to the heart health of all Americans.This action is expected to reduce coronary heart disease and prevent thousands of fatal heart attacks every year.”
If companies refuse to abide by the FDA’s new regulations in regards to the use of trans fat they will face penalty if they do not file for a special permit and be specifically approved by the FDA administration.
