New York City Health Dept. Proposes That Restaurant Chains with 15+ Outlets List Calories

Thanks to the perseverance of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Commissioner Frieden, and Mayor Bloomberg, diners at chain restaurants with 15 or more outlets nationally may soon see listings of calories on menus and menu boards. The new proposed regulations are carefully designed to avoid any potential conflicts with federal food labeling law, and will be compliant with the decision of Judge Holwell in the restaurant industry’s ill-intentioned lawsuit against the city.

CONSUMER AND INDUSTRY GROUPS COSPONSOR CONFERENCE ON SALT REDUCTION

WASHINGTON—Health experts agree that Americans are consuming too much salt. That’s why the nation’s biggest food industry group, Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), and the nation’s most prominent nutrition advocacy group, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), brought together food industry leaders, health professionals, and government officials at a conference aimed at helping consumers meet the 2005 Dietary Guidelines goal of 2,300 mg of sodium per day.
