Disclosure of Calories on Menus Law Upheld

As posted by Suites & Sentences blog, "the calorie police have won another one!"

On Tuesday, February 17, 2009, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals upheld New York City's law requiring some restaurants to pose calorie information on their menus. The law covers about 10 percent of the restaurants in New York City, notably such chains as McDonald's and Kentucky Fried Chicken.

More information is available on Health News, Associated Press, Consumer Law and Policy Blog, Law.Com, and more.

  1. Demand ALL TAXES IN THE TAX CHAIN BE EXPOSED ON EVERYTHING WE BUY! You do that, and I'll go along with this. So we'd see that on a $9.95 purchase, about $6.00 is accumulated TAX...TAX taken out on every step. You Count Every Step of taxes, and we'll allow Every Step of Calories be counted. Case Closed
