Jack in the Box’s Burger Tops Unhealthy List

It may seem like a steal at $1. But Jack in the Box's junior bacon cheeseburger has been ranked the unhealthiest "value menu" item offered by a fast food chain, according to the Cancer Project.

Dieticians from the non-profit food watchdog group examined value menu fare from five fast food chains and found that many of these items are loaded with saturated fat, sodium and other ingredients that can increase the risk of heart disease and diabetes. They also contain grilled or processed meats, which have been linked to cancer.



The Jack in the Box bacon cheeseburger has 400 calories, 23 grams of fat and just 1 gram of fiber. The chain's junior bacon cheeseburger has been ranked the unhealthiest "value menu" item offered by a fast food chain, according to the Cancer Project.
