The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently released its final menu and vending machine calorie labeling rules, which impact how consumers get calorie information while they are on the go. We released the following statement today, and wanted to share it with our readers:
“America’s beverage companies are ahead of the curve when it comes to providing consumers the information they need to make the choices that are right for them. We have already put clear calorie information on the front of every bottle, can and pack we make, and we’re providing calorie information on company-controlled vending machines. FDA’s announcement provides consumers nationwide with consistent information about the foods and beverages they consume outside the home.”
