Foghorn Leghorn protects the ladies for KFC

Like most other fast-food outlets, KFC uses partially hydrogenated oil in its foods. This oil contains relatively high levels of trans fat, which increases the risk of heart disease. The Center for Science in the Public Interest filed a court case against KFC, with the aim of making it use other types of oils or make sure customers know about trans fat content immediately before they buy food. Michael Jacobsen, director of the Center describes KFC content of trans fats as: “It recklessly puts its customers at risk of a Kentucky Fried Coronary.”

Foghorn Leghorn is the name of a character appearing in numerous Warner Brothers animated cartoons, especially Looney Tunes. He is a large, anthropomorphic adult rooster with a strong southern accent and a penchant for mischief. He first appeared in 1946 in a Henery Hawk film entitled Walky Talky Hawky.
