Trans Fats Banned From Facilities In 2009
BALTIMORE — The Baltimore City Health Department issued its first environmental citation for repeat violations of the city’s trans fat ban.
The Health Department issued Healthy Choice, a food facility in the 400 block of Lexington Street, a $100 fine on Thursday.
“It was the second time they were found with a high trans fat level in their ingredients,” said Health Department agent Juan Gutierrez.
Officials said that during inspections in July and this month, the facility was found to be using a margarine product with trans fat levels in excess of what the law allows.
