Proposed new rules would require menu-labeling
According to an article in the Washington Post, the FDA proposed new rules on Friday that would require chain restaurants to provide calorie information for the meals they serve. The proposed rules are subject to a public commenting period before they are in enacted in 2012. One exception to the rules leaves out movie theaters from the requirement as movie theaters have argued that people go to the movies to watch movies, not eat meals.
