The FDA strikes again
Obamacare called for calorie count information to be posted on menus of chain restaurants with more than 20 locations, and, on vending machines if the owner of the machine owned more than 20 machines. Now, the Food and Drug Administration which is in charge of writing regulations covering that section of Obamacare has drastically expanded “calorie count information” far beyond what was included in the law.
The FDA plans to require calorie info for the following:
airlines, trains, grocery-store food courts, movie theaters and convenience stores that qualify as chains. Within grocery stores, the agency said, it is considering including salad bars, store bakeries, pizza bars and delicatessens.
American Airlines says it doesn’t offer printed menus in the main cabin for international flights, where traditional meal service often is still available…
Isn’t it bad enough that airlines nickle and dime passengers as it is. Now, there will no doubt be a “calorie information menu fee” added to your airplane ticket charges.
This really is government run amok.
