Scientists Have Decided That Long John Silver's Big Catch Is The "Worst Meal" In America

This is it, people, we finally found it.

Posted on

Here's a full report from CSPI about the nutrion, or lack there of, of the Big Catch meal.

What most startled CSPI researchers was the 33 grams of trans fat in the Big Catch meal, all of which comes from industrially produced partially hydrogenated frying oil. The American Heart Association recommends that people limit themselves to about two grams of trans fat per day—or about as much as one might consume from naturally occurring trans fat in milk and meat. In other words, Long John Silver's Big Catch meal with onion rings has 16 times as much trans fat as the heart association recommends—more than two weeks' worth.

Of course, we all know what happens when you say something is the worst food in America...
