Here’s a visual for you.
Check out the map above where I have pointed out some of the passed, pending, and active menu labeling ordinances that I have noticed in the recent news. I should also point out that each of these laws differs or will differ in their parameters. For example; California’s menu labeling ordinance will only apply to restaurants with 20 or more locations in California; while New York all restaurant chains with 15 or more units in the US are affected. These laws also differ in which nutrients restaurants are required to post, and where in the restaurant the information must be listed.
If you have read about other pending menu labeling laws please post a comment.
More to come, I'm sure,
