As part of the new health insurance law in 2010, restaurants, grocery store delis, and convenient stores that sell prepared food were going to be required to put nutrition labels on their menu. But, Congress has canceled the December 1, 2016 effective date, and no new date has been announced.

A bill was passed last month that will give restaurants and grocers more flexibility on how they label calorie counts, as well as enable “to-go” restaurants to post calories on smart phone apps.  (Nation’s Restaurant News)

We will continue to watch for updates.
