U.S. FDA Seeks Input On Implementing Restaurant Nutrition Labeling Law

July 8, 2010: 01:29 PM EST
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has asked for public input on how best to implement a new federal law requiring that nutrition data be posted on menus at fast-food and other chain restaurants, and vending machines. The new law, enacted in March, sets new federal labeling requirements for food sold at certain restaurants, coffee shops, delis, movie theaters, bakeries, ice cream shops, and vending machines. Restaurants that are part of a chain with 20 or more locations selling substantially the same menu items have to list calorie content information on menus and menu boards, including drive-through menu boards. If customers ask for it, restaurants have to provide detailed nutrition information, such as calories, fat, saturated fat, etc. Comments will be accepted for 60 days after July 7.
