Canada to Ban Trans Fats

September 15, 2017: The BizJournals and specialtyfood.com:

"Health Canada has taken the final step to ban partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs)—the main source of industrially produced trans fats—in all food sold in Canada. This includes both domestically produced and imported products and foods, as well as those that are prepared and served in restaurants and food service establishments." "Once the ban is implemented, any food containing PHOs cannot be legally sold in Canada."
" The ban will come into force one year from today on September 15, 2018, to give the food industry enough time to find suitable alternatives."
