Phasing Out Our Trans Fats Ain’t Cheap

While it’s a good move for our health, companies will pay the price. The FDA estimates that it will cost about $8 billion initially to remove trans fats from the food supply and $14 billion over the next 20 years, CNN.com reported. But over the years, companies have voluntarily phased out the use of trans fats in the past eight years, so perhaps cost isn’t a factor.
