Given that trans fats occur naturally in meat and dairy products, they'll always be present in your diet (unless, possibly, you're a vegan).

Supermarkets and food producers have removed hydrogenated vegetable oils (which contain trans fats) from many product ranges but they're not actually prohibited.
