"It doesn't matter if you like to dunk them in milk or twist them apart, Californians may not get to eat Oreos at all after a San Francisco lawyer sued to ban the cookies claiming they're dangerous."
British-born attorney Stephen Joseph holds an Oreo cookie in San Francisco May 12, 2003. Joseph, who has spent much of his life enjoying Oreo biscuits has sued Kraft Foods. and is seeking to ban the much-loved cookies in California because they contain trans fat, an ingredient he calls inedible.
And wouldn't you know it-he has support.
"State Sen. Debra Bowen, a leader in state nutrition-reform legislation, called Joseph's choice of the California product liability law to go after food makers who use trans fat a unique approach."
Lying in ambush this Oreo cookie seeks to snare an unsuspecting eater.
