National Restaurant Association Statement Regarding Federal Court Ruling on Menu Labeling in New York City
Date:2/17/2009

WASHINGTON, Feb. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- National Restaurant Association Executive Vice President for Public Affairs Beth Johnson issued the following statement in response to today's U.S. Court of Appeals decision to uphold a New York City Board of Health regulation that dictates how nutrition information should be provided in some of the city's restaurants:

"The only way to ensure consumers get the nutrition information they want and need is for the federal government to establish a uniform national nutrition standard that requires chain restaurants to provide consistent, detailed nutrition information in writing in their restaurants.

"The decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in favor of the New York City menu labeling mandate does not help more consumers get more nutrition information. Rather, it makes a confusing patchwork of state regulations even worse. As a growing number of cities and towns move ahead with different versions of menu-labeling mandates for restaurants, America's consumers face an increasing array of locally mandated nutrition data. Some people may get access to more information -- but no one is getting all the nutrition information they need to make smart food choices when dining out. We need one national standard so everyone can have access to the nutrition information they want when they want it. And that is what the LEAN (Labeling Education and Nutrition) Act will provide.

"The LEAN Act is based on the success of the federal Nutrition Labeling and Education Act (NLEA) and proposes expanding it to restaurants. NLEA was enacted over a decade ago to provide consumers with nutrition information on packaged foods and beverages. It has been credited with helping consumers make healthier food choices when shopping for food or eating at home. The LEAN Act will expand NLEA to require point-of-sale nutrition data on standardized menu items sold by chain restaurant
