On Tuesday, June 16th 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a final rule that gives U.S. food companies three years to remove trans fats, also known as partially hydrogenated oils from processed foods. Alternatively, food companies may apply for special permission for use in food products.

According to the FDA, artificial trans fats are linked to heart disease and are no longer considered safe to eat.
