Indiana's Menu Labeling Bill

Indiana House Bill No. 1207 would require food  establishments having 20 or more locations in Indiana to post both calorie and carbohydrate information “in a manner that allows consumers to consider the information when selecting an item or unit of food.”  These establishments would also have to make available to customers the amount of calories, fat, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, fiber, sugars, and protein in each food item.  Violations would be punishable by a civil penalty up to $1,000 for each violation per day.
