FDA Offers Guidance For Restaurants On Complying With New Nutrition Labeling Law

August 25, 2010: 01:10 PM EST
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has published drafts of guidelines that tell chain and other restaurants how to comply with the new federal nutrition labeling law, which requires that basic nutrition information on menu items be provided to restaurant diners. The restaurant and retail food establishment section of the law, which was enacted in March 2010, requires posting the number of calories for standard menu items on menus and menu boards, providing additional nutrition information in writing, and posting clearly that nutrition information is available on request. Restaurants also must post calorie information for self-serve items and foods on display. The agency, which is seeking public comment on the proposed guidelines, said it will hold off enforcing final regulations until restaurants have had time to comply.
