California transfat ban to take effect

CALIFORNIA (NBC) -- Starting Friday, California will become the first state to ban transfats at restaurants and bars.

Many restaurants are now working to find an alternative to cooking products that contain more than half of a gram of trans-fatty acids.

Experts have tied the substance to clogged arteries, strokes and heart disease.

Several cities have already enacted similar bans, however California is the first state to get involved.
