Sorry if I am a bit late with this, just catching up with the news after my vacation, still I was amazed with this bit when I found it today in my feed.
The Center for Science in the Public Interest named Long John Silver’s Big Catch Meal the “Worst Restaurant Meal in America.” The meal is a “7 to 8 ounce” piece of fried haddock, served with a side of onion rings and hush puppies.
For just $4.99 you get 33 grams of trans fat (that's a 2-week norm according to American Heart Association), 19 grams of saturated fat, 3,700 milligrams of sodium. All of this comes in at 1,320 calories.
On the Long John Silver's website, there is an ad for the "New Big Catch Basket" claiming the fish is now three times bigger than one piece of uncooked Alaskan pollock of unspecified size. The CSPI is charging that the fast food chain doesn't accurately post its nutrition facts.
According to the report, Long John Silver's advertises its haddock as 7 to 8 ounces of pure haddock. The CSPI says that in reality, it's 60% haddock, 40% butter and grease.
