FDA has posted the final menu labeling guidance. With this guidance posted, it is even more important that you contact your U.S. Senators urging them to co-sponsor legislation (S. 2217) to fix FDA’s “Menu

your extraordinary efforts over the last few days and weeks. There is not
one Senator who has not been touched by a grocer in the last week and that is
Please take a moment to send a letter to your Senators that either thanks them for voting for the Roberts bill, or thanks them for their consideration of the measure.
