New York City’s Fast-Food Calorie Labeling Rule Should Be Upheld, Groups Urge Federal Court

WASHINGTON, D.C. – A federal court in New York should reject the state restaurant association’s attempt to strike down New York City’s new requirement that certain fast-food and other chain restaurants disclose calorie information on their menus, according to a brief submitted today by the nonprofit organizations Public Citizen and the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI). The groups were joined in their brief by Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), a former FDA commissioner and a host of prestigious public health organizations and esteemed nutrition experts.
