Frozen French fries,
fried in oil, and
being approved as “fresh vegetables” by the US
Department of Agriculture(USDA). The French fry industry has been asking the USDA for years to get this
approval. They say that their product is similar to
cucumbers that have
wax on them.
They argue that they use 100 percent vegetable oil, which is much
healthier for consumers than
plain wax. Most consumers, of course,
beg to differ. “You must be joking,” says Annie, 50. “How can you think a product that’s

I wish I were a big company, so my congressman would help me.
Unfortunately, I’m only a citizen.” The USDA
defends its decision, saying that
potatoes undeniably are vegetables. “Although French fries are fried in oil, they are still potatoes. If you let them sit on
your counter for a couple of weeks,” a USDA employee said, “
the fries will rot just like all other fresh vegetables.”
Consumers say the USDA has totally lost touch with the public. “
They’d probably say that eggshells are healthy if a company asked them to,” says one consumer.
