Today, the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) filed a pre-publication version of an interim final rule that extends the compliance date of the agency’s final menu-labeling rule until May 7, 2018. In addition to the delay, FDA requests comments on how the agency may reduce the regulatory burden on retailers and alternative approaches for labeling self-service foods, other methods for providing calorie disclosure other than on the menu itself, and criteria for distinguishing between a menu and other information such as an advertisement. The interim final rule is scheduled to be published on May 4, and comments will be due 60 days later (July 3, 2017).
