New York City Proposes New Menu Labeling Regulations

NYC just isn’t giving up. They’ve rewritten the menu labeling regulation so that rather than making the menu rules dependent on whether or not the restaurant was already supplying nutritional information, all restaurants with more than 15 locations nationally will be required to put calorie info on the menus. This change puts them in accordance with federal law.

Deal with it, Wendy’s! BK! Starbucks! Subway is making you all look bad. Put some healthy crap on the menus. Quick, before anyone notices. People will still order the Bacon Triple Stack Mocha Latte Fries.
