FDA Extends Menu Labeling Deadline to May 5, 2017

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration  announced  on Tuesday that the compliance date for the federal government’s menu labeling regulation to May 5, 2017. Initially, the compliance date was Dec. 1, 2016. Cicely Simpson, executive vice president of government affairs and policy at the National Restaurant Association, applauded this move from the FDA because it “gives the food service industry the time it needs to empower their customers to make the best choices for themselves.”
