In the wake of the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) filing court papers a few weeks ago intervening in a current court case challenging the New York City menu-labeling mandate, the Big Apple has agreed to delay implementation. Under the terms of a stipulation filed with the US District Court for the Southern District of New York, the city reached agreement with the New York State Restaurant Association, the New York Association of Convenience Stores and other plaintiffs to delay enforcement of its own menu-labeling requirements until the federal compliance date of May 7, 2018. The plaintiffs agree to continue to educate their members on the NYC requirements and encourage them to prepare to comply with menu-labeling.
