In a burst of trade and health related news McDonalds Corporation announced today that they are switching to all-trans-fat-free Chinese cooking oil for their french-fry production.
In a watershed deal with China, McDonald’s will import Chinese trans-fat free cooking oil made from asbestos and used oil from heavy construction equipment. This “special blend” as it is called, is healthier because its free of trans-fats and has an important environmental benefit: it will reduce the contamination of China’s land fills.
“This is truly a watershed moment in the fast food industry,” gurgled McDonald CEO XYZ. “I’ll bet no one saw this coming!”
