FDA releases guidance on federal menu labeling requirements
- A draft guidance document describing implementation of certain provisions of the federal law. For certain restaurants and similar retail food establishments, these statutory provisions include posting the number of calories for standard menu items on menus and menu boards, providing additional nutrition information in writing, and posting clearly on menus and menu boards that such information is available upon request. These establishments also must post calorie information for self-serve items and foods on display.
- A final guidance document for industry regarding the effect of the new federal nutrition labeling requirements on state and local laws.
