McDonald's TFA Reduction Timeframe Extended
OAK BROOK, Ill.
Feb 28, 2003
McDonald's today said that it plans to extend the timeframe by which it will introduce a change in cooking oil to reduce trans fatty acids (TFAs) and saturated fats in its fried food menu.
The original intent was to complete implementation by the end of February 2003. "While speedy implementation is an admirable goal, we are most focused on the satisfaction of our customers and the quality of our products," said Ralph Alvarez, McDonald's US Chief Operations Officer.Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/19990916/MCDLOGO
