New York City passes trans fat ban

via Slate.

The Interesting part?

The ban contains some exceptions; for instance, it would allow restaurants to serve foods that come in the manufacturer’s original packaging.

That means a restaurant, let’s say a burger joint, can’t make french fries with hydrogenated oils, but they can sell Potato Chips made by another company.

Can you say ‘Double-Standard’?
