Yes

A brief description of the trans-fats avoidance program, policy, or practice:

UC San Diego’s oils used in production, including frying oil, are trans-fat free. UC San Diego seeks to avoid trans-fats in all recipes. UC San Diego orders only trans-fat free margarines or uses butter or oil when appropriate. UC San Diego also aims to make the majority of our dishes from scratch to avoid using convenience products that contain trans-fats. UC San Diego’s retail Places and Markets are also full of trans-fat free packaged foods options, such as Newman’s Own and other varieties.
