Compliance Deadline May 7, 2019
On May 7, 2018, the FDA issued the final ruling on Restaurant Menu Labeling requiring calorie and nutrition labeling on restaurant menus and menu boards. During this first year of compliance, the FDA will work with establishments to achieve the highest level of compliance.
The deadline to comply with this ruling is May 7, 2019.
Restaurant chains, franchises and other establishments selling restaurant type foods with 20 or more locations must now clearly provide calorie labeling for menu items on their menus and menu boards. They must also clearly state that additional restaurant menu nutrition information is available upon request. This includes pizza, theatre popcorn and drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic).
