Westchester County is now joining the growing trend to ban trans fats. Under new restrictions, restaurants and school cafeterias must cook with oils that do not have trans fats.

Offenders risk a ticket and fine.

On Wednesday, a trans fat ban was approved in Stamford, Connecticut. New York City has also banned trans fats.
