    Legal challenge over trans fats In September 2002, McDonald’s announced it was voluntarily reducing the trans fat content of its cooking oil by February 2003. The oil was not changed. In the ensuing lawsuits, plaintiffs claimed that McDonald’s failed to inform the public that the oil was not changed. Since that time, it has been discovered that the trans fat content of some of their products are higher than they claimed (one McDonald's large fries contains 8 grams of trans fat).

    Settlement of the lawsuit brought by BanTransFats.com and one private party requires McDonald’s to inform the public that the oil was not changed. McDonald’s will also donate $7 million to the American Heart Association for public education about the risks of consuming trans fat. [4]

    McDonald’s is also required to spend up to $1.5 million on publishing notices to ensure that the public knows the status of its trans fat initiative. If the cost of publishing the notices is less than $1.5 million, the difference will be donated to the American Heart Association. The California Superior Court for Marin County has entered an order preliminarily approving the settlement.

    In September 2006 McDonalds and all its products were classified healthy by the SAESUF foundation of health obesity. This was criticised heavily by American health nutritionists and argued that their data lacked validity.
