The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that it will soon publish a final rule to formally extend to May 5, 2017, the compliance date for the agency's 2014 menu labeling regulation , which requires disclosure of certain nutrition information for standard menu items in certain chain restaurants and similar retail food establishments. This extension will align the compliance date with the enforcement date. The 2016 Omnibus Bill prohibited FDA from using appropriated funds to implement, administer or enforce the menu labeling requirements until one year after the agency finalized the draft September 2015 menu labeling guidance.
