Colorado Considers Strict School Trans-Fat Ban
Colorado lawmakers are considering a bill that would implement the strictest school trans-fat ban in the United States.
The bill would ban any artery-clogging trans-fat in all school food, not just food served through regular cafeteria lunches. That would mean no trans-fat in vending machine products, after-school bake sale items, and popular "a la carte" lunch items such as pizza and ice cream, the Associated Press reported.
The bill is scheduled to be heard Thursday by a Colorado House committee.
A number of states limit trans-fat in school cafeterias, but there are no trans-fat bans that extend before and after school, the AP reported.
Ground Beef-Related Salmonella Outbreak Over: CDC
A salmonella outbreak linked to ground beef bought at Maine-based Hannaford Supermarkets appears to be over, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday.
The outbreak affected 20 people in 7 states: 6 each in New Hampshire and New York; 4 in Maine; and one each in Hawaii, Kentucky, Massachusetts and Vermont.
The outbreak was investigated by local, state and federal public health and regulatory agencies.
While this particular outbreak is over, salmonella remains an important cause of human illness in the U.S. and consumers need to take measures to reduce their risk of infection, the CDC said.
