WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Diners will have to wait a bit longer to find calorie counts on most restaurant chain menus in supermarkets and on vending machines.
The head of the Food and Drug Administration says writing a new menu labeling law quote "has gotten extremely thorny" as the agency tries to figure out who should be covered by it.
The FDA has said the rules may come out this spring, but the agency may not meet that deadline.
