Sodium content needs to be on the menu at Philly restaurants. Here's why
New legislation proposed last week by Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown will help Philadelphia restaurant-goers reduce their risk of stroke and heart disease.
The bill would require chain restaurants to put warning labels alongside menu items or meals containing at least an entire day’s worth (2,300 mg) of sodium. Its aim is to let consumers make informed choices when dining out. If the legislation passes, Philadelphia will become the second city in the country, after New York, to implement such labels.
