WASHINGTON, D.C. — Philadelphia has passed a menu labeling requirement for chain restaurants, joining the state of California, New York City and several other communities around the country that have enacted such requirements, the Center for Science in the Public Interest announced.
 
Beginning Jan. 1, 2010, chain restaurants with more than 15 outlets must disclose calories on menu boards, and calories, saturated and trans fat, sodium and carbohydrates on printed menus. The measure passed by the Philadelphia City Council is the strongest in the nation so far, and the CSPI said it hopes the legislation is used as a model for other jurisdictions.
