Group Warns of 'Extreme' Restaurant Meals
Calories, Fat, and Sodium in Some Restaurant Meals Exceed Healthy Daily Limits
The National Restaurant Association says the CSPI’s report “paints a distorted picture of restaurants based on a single menu item.”
“Certainly there are indulgent items on menus, but there are more diet-conscious items on menus than ever before, and our customers know it,” Michael Donohue, the organization’s chief spokesman, says in a statement.
Donohue says restaurants support the new food labeling standards for chains set to take effect in 2011.
