Minneapolis pol wants to ban take-out trays

They came for your plastic bags, and now they're coming for your take-out trays. 

Minneapolis City Councilman Andrew Johnson says the largest city in Minnesota should join an ever-growing list of cities to ban foam containers, like the ones used by many restaurants for take-out food or hot tea and coffee. 

In other words, he wants Minneapolis residents to eat cold take-out for the rest of forever. 

Johnson did not return calls for comment, but he told KARE-11 that foam containers are bad for the environment and unhealthy for Minnesotans. 

"There are better alternatives out there," he told the TV station.
