In recent news: Fried chicken is bad for you

A doctor and a consumer group have sued KFC in an effort to stop the chicken chain from cooking with high-fat oil.

"KFC ... recklessly puts its customers at risk of a Kentucky Fried Coronary," Jacobsen said.

Hoyte and the consumer group are seeking class-action status for the lawsuit and asking a judge to let Hoyte represent anyone who ate at a Washington, D.C.-area KFC in 2004 and 2005.

"If I had known that KFC uses an unnatural frying oil, and that their food was so high in trans fat, I would have reconsidered my choices," Hoyte said.

Dr. Hoyte said he is suing to force KFC to change its cooking practices "for my son and others' kids, so they may have a healthier, happier, trans-fat-free future."

Excuse me, doctor, but what the hell did you think the Colonel was cooking his chicken in, if not a gigantic tank of grease? I suppose it never occured to the esteemed Dr. Hoyte to just not order the family bucket of extra crispy poultry parts with a double side of gravy, and just have a salad instead, did it?

In tomorrow's news, we will cover lawsuits claiming "Morton Salt promotes sodium" and "Crisco contains too much grease."
