In 2010, Congress passed a law to have chain food establishments provide calorie nformation on menus and menu boards. The law was meant to include chain restaurants, vending machines, and other food-service establishments with restaurant-type food, like movie theaters and supermarkets
The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) juts released their study that reaffirms the need for restaurants and similar retail food establishments to tell customers how many calories are in their menu items.
For example, who would guess that The Cheesecake Factory’s Bistro Shrimp Pasta has a whopping 3,120 calories or that Smoothie King’s 40 oz. Peanut Power Plus Grape Smoothie has 1,460 calories?
