Menu labeling bill passes house

Article-Menu labeling bill passes house

The House of Representatives passed legislation that would revise the Food and Drug Administration’s menu labeling regulation to provide more flexibility for restaurants, grocery stores and other retail food establishments. The “Common Sense Nutrition Disclosure Act of 2015,” allows nutritional information to be provided remotely via the internet or mobile app, instead of on a menu board inside an establishment.

Similar legislation has been introduced in the Senate by Sens. Roy Blunt (R-MO) and Angus King (I-ME).
