Health Advisory: Free French Fries At Burger King

The offer to make a poor nutrition choice is good Dec. 16 only.

Burger King isn’t doing much to help America’s obesity epidemic.

The nationwide fast-food chain is promoting its French fries by giving them away for free as part of the Dec. 16 "Free Fries Friday."

The fattening campaign is designed to get more people to try what promoters are billing as “new Burger King fries.”

At participating Burger Kings in Southern California, patrons can get one free "value size" order of fries  -- one order per person, per visit -- according to the chain. No purchase necessary.

According to Burger King’s online menu and nutrition information page, a medium size order of salted BK fries contains 410 calories, 18 grams of fat and 570 milligrams of sodium.

The offer to make a poor nutrition choice is good Dec. 16 only, and it includes the disclaimer "While Supplies Last."
