A New York appeals court has reportedly vacated a February 2016 order
that stayed enforcement of New York City’s regulation requiring chain
restaurants with more than 15 locations to post warning icons on menus
next to items with more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium. The ruling
allows enforcement to begin on June 6, 2016, with violators subject to
$200 fines. The National Restaurant Association (NRA) won an emergency
stay on February 29, one day before the regulation’s scheduled
March 1 enforcement date. Details about the NRA’s lawsuit challenging
the regulation appear in Issues 586, 595 and 596 of this Update. See
