It may have actually become law back in 2010 with the passage of Obamacare (The Affordable Care Act), but was never legally enforced – until now. Menu labeling enforcement becomes effective on Monday, May 7. The enforcement trigger was set to be effective one year ago, when the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) delayed it until this coming Monday. At this juncture, with most, if not all, national restaurant chains – Dunkin’ included – already in compliance, no further delays are expected in the enforcement of the final menu labeling requirements. An effort was underway in Congress to change some provisions of the menu labeling requirement and in fact a bill doing so passed the US House earlier this year, but that legislation is still tied up in the US Senate and is likely to remain there without passing. On a different FDA issue, the agency has again delayed the date when food and beverage manufacturers must comply with a new Nutrition Facts Label from July 26 of this year until January 1, 2020 (for companies with $10M in sales). Those with less than $10M will have until the New Year in 2021 to comply with the new label.
