  • Today FDA published in the Federal Register two proposed rules regarding calorie labeling on menus and menu boards in chain restaurants, retail food establishments, and vending machines. The proposed rules provide detail as to how FDA will implement and enforce the requirements contained in section 4205 of the healthcare reform legislation signed into law on March 23, 2010 and supplant a 2010 FDA Draft Guidance regarding implementation of the menu labeling provisions.
