Kentucky Fried Chicken

Los Angeles, CA: (Apr-25-07) Kentucky Fried Chicken was among about a dozen companies sued in 2005 for allegedly failing to heed Proposition 65, a voter-passed 1986 measure that requires businesses to post warnings about dangerous chemicals. KFC was accused of failing to warn its customers that its potatoes contain a suspected cancer-causing chemical. In a settlement reached, KFC agreed to display warnings that its fried or baked potatoes contain acrylamide, which is created when chemicals in food react to high heat as well as pay more than $340,000 in penalties and funding for Proposition 65 enforcement. KFC did not admit to any wrongdoing. Other companies named in the lawsuit include giants like PepsiCo, McDonald's and Frito-Lay. [ABC NEWS: KFC CANCER CHEMICALS]
