FDA Requiring Calorie Count on Menus at Sporting Venues, Bowling Alleys
The White House is planning nearly 3,500 new regulations, including controversial calorie labeling rules.
The FDA today announced the rules, which will require establishments to post calorie counts on their menus if they sell prepared foods in 20 or more locations. The rules will affect sporting venues, bowling alleys and vending machines.
“I think the regulatory environment in this country is the number one competitive threat for American businesses and a very, very competitive global economy,” Jay Timmons, National Association of Manufacturers, told Shannon Bream.
Nearly 200 regulations proposed this year are estimated to come with a bill of $100 million each in annual impact. Costs are passed onto consumers at a rate of $15,000 per household each year.
