Long John Silver's Big Catch is the worst meal in the United States, according to the Center for the Science in the Public Interest (CSPI).
This inauspicious title was bestowed upon the dish for transforming healthy fish into a fatty, salty "heart attack on a hook," as described by CSPI executive director Michael F. Jacobson.
The meal contains an astounding 33 grams of trans fat, 16.5 times the daily limit of trans fats for a 2,000-calorie diet, as recommended by the American Heart Association. That's on top of 19 grams of saturated fat and 3,700 milligrams of sodium.
The CSPI, often referred to as the "Food Police," hasn't simply singled out Long John Silver's restaurant. The watchdog group has also called out other restaurants for their similarly unhealthy meals. Here's a taste of other dishes that you'll probably want to skip next time you see them on the menu.
