Supes ask S.F. restaurants to cut trans fat

San Francisco Supervisor Sophie Maxwell today will introduce legislation that asks restaurants to cut the fat by discontinuing their use of artificial trans fats.

Maxwell will hold a news conference announcing the legislation, which asks the city’s Department of Public Health to create a Trans Fat Free Program, which gives restaurants that avoid using artificial fats a standard decal to display in their eatery.

Participating restaurants would also be featured on a Web site list of certified trans-fat free restaurants compiled by the director of public health, according to Maxwell’s office.

Supervisors Aaron Peskin and Tom Ammiano co-sponsored the bill, which is also supported by the Bayview Child Health Center, the Golden Gate Restaurant Association and the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, according to officials.

The news conference announcing the trans fat free restaurant legislation will take place today at 11 a.m. on the steps of City Hall, according to officials.
