H.R. 772: Common Sense Nutrition Disclosure Act of 2017
On Passage of the Bill in the House

This was a vote to pass H.R. 772 in the House.

H.R. 772 amends the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetics Act to clarify the information certain retail food chain establishments, with 20 or more locations, must disclose about nutrition to the consumer to prevent overly burdensome regulations for certain establishments, such as convenience stores, supermarkets, grocery stores and pizza restaurants, and to provide flexibility in how restaurants display calorie information.

Specifically, the bill allows retail food establishments where the majority of orders are placed by customers who are off-premises at the time such order is placed, such as pizza restaurants, to disclose nutritional information on a remote-access menu (such as a menu available on the Internet) as the sole method of disclosure instead of on-premises writings. The bill also eliminates criminal penalties and allows restaurants and retailers to take corrective action, and preempts civil litigation for violations of the federal menu labeling law and any state laws that may exist. The bill accommodates for inadvertent variations that occur during the food preparation process.
