KFC's fried chicken buckets soon will be stamped with a health message along with the famous likeness of its founder, Colonel Harland Sanders.

The banner proclaims that its chicken has zero grams of trans fat per serving.

The Louisville-based chain has announced that all 5,500 of its U.S. restaurants have stopped frying chicken in artery-clogging trans fat. It's switching to a new soybean oil believed less likely to cause heart disease.

Sister brand Taco Bell also says its U.S. restaurants have completely switched to an oil with zero grams of trans fat. All 4,200 single-brand Taco Bells were converted to a canola oil, and all 1,400 multibrand locations switched to a soybean oil.
