Joint letter to U.S. Senate opposing weakening of menu labeling

We, the undersigned organizations, write in strong opposition to the bill offered by Senators Roy Blunt (R-MO) and Lamar Alexander (R-TN)—a substitute amendment to the House-passed Common Sense Nutrition Disclosure Act (H.R. 772)—that would exempt restaurant chains with at least 75 percent of sales off-premises, like Domino’s Pizza and other major take-out chains, from labeling calories for their menu items inside the establishment. In addition, the bill would weaken menu labeling enforcement and consumer protection measures. The bill could be hotlined for unanimous approval by the Senate as early as Monday, June 4.
