Restaurant Labeling Provision in Limbo

Post-election angst about the future of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), aka Obamacare, has spilled over into the food/restaurant industry. Since the new Menu Labeling requirements for restaurants with 20 or more units, as well as rules for vending machines and supermarkets that serve ready-to-eat food, are part of the ACA, industry stakeholders are anxiously awaiting whether the new administration is going to repeal the law completely, replace it or make line-item changes to the ACA. Restaurants that have been performing due diligence to get their ducks in a row for providing nutritional information about their menu items are now wondering if all their efforts were for naught, or if another provision is coming, and if so what are the requirements. Stay tuned for more on this ever-changing issue.
