Menu Labeling and other Food Labeling Laws—What do we have a right to know and does it matter?

Mitchell Hamline Health Law Institute is hosting a CLE on menu labeling.

This CLE will provide an overview of federal, state, and local laws relating to food labeling, including nutrition facts panel disclosures, calorie disclosures and warnings on menus, claims made on labels, and other labeling issues. Presenters will explain how these laws developed, highlight the constitutional issues they implicate, and summarize the peer-reviewed scientific research around food labeling and to what extent they impact consumer behavior.
