According to Nation’s Restaurant News, “The U.S. Food and Drug Administration published Friday its much-anticipated proposed menu-labeling regulations for chain restaurants.”

“The FDA had missed an initial deadline of March 23 — one year after President Obama signed the provision into law as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010.

The FDA is expected to publish its final regulations by the end of this year, and enforcement could begin as early as summer of 2012.”
