Pizza Chains Say Proposed FDA Menu Labeling Requirements Are Overly Burdensome

June 20, 2012: 10:23 PM EST
A coalition of America’s big pizza chains is trying to convince Washington lawmakers that pizza is anything but a homogeneous product and therefore should be exempt from proposed menu labeling requirements. The FDA wants pizza restaurants to display, at their own expense, menu boards listing ingredients and calorie counts of foods they sell. There are two problems with the proposed requirement, the “American Pizza Community” says: first, pizza ingredient combinations change constantly; and secondly, 90 percent of pizza orders are placed over the phone or on the Internet.
