NYC Menu Labeling Regulations Delayed Until Aug. 25

A court hearing with plaintiffs including the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) has delayed the implementation of New York City menu labeling regulations until Aug. 25.

On Aug. 16, counsel for the plaintiffs, defendant and federal government met with the judge presiding over NACS’s challenge to New York City’s attempt to enforce its menu labeling regulations—nine months prior to the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) regulations going into effect.

NACS logoNACS, along with the New York Association of Convenience Stores (NYACS), the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) and the Restaurant Law Center, brought suit against New York City to prevent enforcement of its regulations prior to the compliance date set by the FDA.

NACS and the other plaintiffs argued that federal law prevents the city from moving forward prior to the compliance date for FDA’s menu labeling regulations. The city planned to start enforcing its regulations on Aug. 21.

During the meeting with Judge Marrero of the U.S. court for the Southern District of New York, the plaintiffs and the city agreed to discuss potential solutions to the legal dispute. The city agreed not to enforce its regulations until Aug. 25 in order to allow those discussions to take place. A new hearing before Judge Marrero has been scheduled for the afternoon of Aug. 25.
