Fast-food companies are marketing to children a product with proven health hazards and no warning labels. They would do well to protect themselves and their customers, by providing the nutrition information people need to make informed choice about their products. Without such warnings, we’ll see more sick, obese children and more angry, litigious parents. I say, let the deep-fried chips fall where they may” (Zinczenko, 2015,
