Restaurant chains all over the country are jumping on the New York City bandwagon by banning Trans fat from their foods. Wisconsin based Culvers is already cutting the fat.

 Culvers spokesman Chris Contino says reducing Trans fat is nothing new for Culvers. It started a couple of years ago and by 2005 the chain got down to a 25 per cent reduction in Trans fats.

 Contino says the company has a goal of March 1, 2007 to reach zero grams of Trans fat in its cooking oil.

 Culvers will replace Trans fat oil with the healthier canola oil but it's also more expensive.
