All the major and minor chains, it seems, have years ago switched to various forms of plant-derived fats, which is a change that I suspect is motivated by deference to those of Semitic persuasions. The only holdouts for hog lard are the Hispanic and Chinese bakeries, which, tragically, use hydrogenated lard (which contains transfats) that is also processed with stabilizers and other chemicals, such as BHT, which improves shelf stability at the expense of health. I have been unable to find any bakery, however small or local, that uses lard that I would actually want to consume.

The switch was probably because saturated fats were so vilified for so long. Even MacDonalds, which used beef tallow for it's fries (so feasibly "kosher") discontinued it years ago in favour of vegetable shortening.
