Worst Restaurant Meal in America
The U.S. nutrition advocacy group Center for Science in the Public Interest has named Long John Silver’s “Big Catch” limited-time-only fish platter as the “Worst Restaurant Meal in America” on Tuesday (July 2nd). CSPI cited the eye-popping figures in the meal of fried fish, hush puppies and onion rings: 1,320 calories, 33 grams of trans fats and 3,700 milligrams of sodium. CSPI wants the chain to stop using cooking oil containing trans fats and is urging the FDA to revoke its approval of trans fat-containing partially hydrogenated cooking oils that raise the risk of heart disease. The organization says it will pursue legal action if Long John Silver’s continues to use the unhealthy cooking oil.
