NYC delays calorie-count requirement
March 27, 2008
New York Daily News: The New York City Health Department has delayed a plan that would require restaurant chains to post calorie counts on menu boards starting March 31.
The requirement was pushed back to April 15 to give courts time to decide whether the city law is legal. The New York State Restaurant Association has sued to block the plan.
Under the law, eateries that failed to post the calorie counts could be hit with fines from $200 to $2,000. The fines wouldn't be issued until the end of a grace period May 27.
