Tyson Foods Taking Trans Fat Out of Some Products

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Tyson Foods Inc., the No. 1 U.S. meat company, on Monday said it has begun removing trans fat ingredients from fully-cooked retail products and "child nutrition"-labeled school products.
Medical experts now believe that trans fats are more harmful to the heart than other forms of fat that have been linked to heart disease like animal fats.

The company started this week removing trans fat from Tyson-brand breaded chicken products, such as nuggets, patties and tenders, and is expected to be phased in over the next three months.

Packaging announcing the removal of trans fats will be in supermarkets in late spring and early summer, the Springdale, Arkansas-based company said.
