The U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Menu Labeling Rule, which was set to go into effect on May 5, 2017, has been delayed. The Menu Labeling Rule called for businesses in the food service industry (e.g. restaurants, grocery and convenience stores) with 20 or more locations to post calorie counts on their menu boards. This would apply to most food service franchise systems. The Rule is now set to go into effect on May 7, 2018.
