Restaurant association to sue NYC over sodium disclosure requirement

Yesterday, the National Restaurant Association announced plans to file a lawsuit against New York City's health department over its requirement that chain restaurants post warning labels on foods that contain more than the recommended daily limit for sodium. The rule takes effect today. It requires chain restaurants with 15 or more locations in New York City to display a warning symbol — a salt shaker inside a triangle — if a menu item has more than 2,300 milligrams of salt.
