Help Fix the Menu Labeling Law Loophole

Please consider signing on to the attached statement in opposition to the “Common Sense Nutrition Disclosure Act of 2012.”  This bill (H.R.6174) would weaken the national menu labeling law by exempting supermarkets and convenience stores from having to post calorie information on prepared foods, giving pizza chains an unfair loophole, and allowing calories for a food item to be listed per serving—rather than in its entirety.

We need your help in discouraging Congressional offices to cosponsor this harmful legislation. You are invited to sign on. Please email hjones@cspinet.org by Friday August 24 if you would like to sign-on or if you have any questions.
