The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) extended the compliance date for the final rule requiring disclosure of certain nutrition information for standard menu items in restaurants and retail food establishments to align it with the rule's enforcement date. Covered establishments are now required to comply with the final rule by May 5, 2017. The final menu labeling rule requires restaurants and similar retail food establishments that are part of a chain with 20 or more locations conducting business under the same name and offering for sale substantially the same menu items to provide calorie and other nutrition information for standard menu items, including food on display and self-service food.
