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, 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.
