|By:, SA News Editor

The FDA's increased efforts to restrict trans fats in foods is only causing a minor ripple in the food and restaurant industries.

Companies such as Campbell Soup (CPB +0.2%), General Mills (GIS -0.1%), and Mondelez International (MDLZ +0.9%) say have already taken measures to remove hydrogenated oils from products under pressure from consumer groups and aren't putting up much of a fight.

The National Restaurant Association says its members support efforts to promote healthier eating.
