FDA Commissioner Releases Statement on Menu Labeling

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Scott Gottlieb recently issued a statement on the FDA’s role in menu labeling. The statement emphasized the importance of ensuring Americans have access to clear and consistent calorie and nutrition information on menus at restaurants, movie theaters, and grocery stores nationwide.
