Subway First to List Calories on Menu Boards in Country

WASHINGTON—Subway is the first large chain restaurant to list calories on menu boards in its restaurants in New York City, as is required by the city’s groundbreaking menu labeling law. Though July 1 was the effective date of a regulation passed by the New York City Board of Health, McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, and other fast-food restaurants are refusing to comply while the industry sues the city in federal court. The pretzel chain Auntie Anne’s is also complying with the regulation and Johnny Rockets and Arby’s have submitted sample menu boards to the city. The Health Department will begin enforcing the rule in earnest in October.
