Oppose Efforts to Delay or Weaken Menu Labeling

The FDA recently delayed implementation of menu labeling by a whole year and plans to weaken how calories are labeled, making them harder to find and use.  We have until July 3 to oppose this effort.

The delay comes at the request of food industry groups that have aggressively pushed their anti-menu labeling agenda for years. They call it flexibility, but what industry is asking for is to make menu labeling meaningless—allowing them to make up their own serving sizes, place calories far from where customers are choosing foods, and put calories on the Internet rather than right on menus in restaurants and stores.

While menu labeling is under threat from the Trump Administration’s FDA, the supermarket and convenience store trade associations and Domino’s Pizza continue to push their anti-menu labeling bill in Congress.
