Topic: Menu Labeling
FDA recently proposed a rule that would mandate calorie-only labeling for foods sold in restaurants with 20 or more locations. The rule is required under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010.
NCA submitted comments to FDA that retail chocolate and candy stores should be exempted from this rule. Once the rule is finalized NCA will work to educate members and the confectionery industry on the potential impact of this rule.
