The Allegheny County Health Department announced today that 26 food establishments have opened in the county over the last two months, including two in the McKeesport area.

"The key to a healthy diet is choosing foods that have more good fats than bad fats, or trans fats," said Dr. Karen Hacker, director of the health department. "As part of our county-wide commitment to promoting individual and community wellness, we also look at and highlight those facilities that use trans fat-free cooking oils.  We see more restaurants taking that step toward living well.  These past two months, nine of the seventeen eateries that opened cook with these healthier oils."

The two new restaurants in the McKeesport area are Pizza Palermo, 406 Lysle Blvd. in the city, and Jazton 2 Jazton Smokehouse, 1955 Lincoln Way in White Oak.

Others are in Carnegie, Oakmont, Brentwood, Dormont, Ohio Twp., Upper St. Clair Twp., McCandless Twp., Ross Twp., Findlay Twp.., Castle Shannon, Pittsburgh.

In all, 17 restaurants, two retailers, two bakeries, a convenience store, two coffee houses and two mobile vendors opened in the county in August and September.
