Skip to comments.Domino's: Obamacare Requires 34 Million Pizza Nutrition Signs
Posted on 11/30/2012 10:10:09 AM PST by Nachum
New Obamacare regulations will force pizza chains like Domino's to post up to 34 million nutrition signs in its stores -- one for every pizza combination the company makes.
The rules require fast food and grocery stores that have more than 20 stores to require labels for each product they produce.
Jenny Fouracre-Petko, the legislative director for Dominos, said mandated signs will cost Dominos nearly $5,000 per store. Even worse, the cost will get passed down to the consumer, many of whom will never see the signs since 10 percent of pizza customers never enter a Dominos store because they use Dominos exclusively as a delivery service.
"It's not like a Big Mac. Pizza is customizable, there are options to factor in," Fouracre-Petko said. "There are 34 million pizza combinations. We've done the math."
Erik Lieberman, counsel for the Food Marketing Institute, said grocery stores will have to do the same.

They should be careful of what they reveal, next they will be ordered to plaster the pizza boxes with the same signs...
New Obamacare regulations will force pizza chains like Domino's to post up to 34 million nutrition signs in its stores -- one for every pizza combination the company makes.Except they won't.
Obamacare SEC. 4205:MENU VARIABILITY AND COMBINATION MEALS.The Secretary shall establish by regulation standards for deter- mining and disclosing the nutrient content for standard menu items that come in different flavors, varieties, or combinations, but which are listed as a single menu item, such as soft drinks, ice cream, pizza, doughnuts, or childrens combination meals, through means determined by the Secretary, including ranges, averages, or other methods.
Bottom line, the FDA is coming up with rules so that Pizza places don't have to list 34 million calorie counts because, yes, that would be really stupid.
I don't know what the final rules are, but I found a document at the FDA listing several straightforward and common-sense approaches. If Domino's can't comply with any of these for considerably less than $5000 a store, it is run by retards and deserves to go out of business.
On a related note: if conservatism has become a movement for people too stupid and lazy to use Google (actually, I used Bing to research this) then 2012 will come to be remembered as "the year we didn't lose that badly."
I bet the fine is less. Take the fine.
the oval is “O” for obama.
the inner symbol is the electrical schematic symbol for a resistor (resistance).
Just. Effing. Wow.
Nanny State PING!
I do believe the idea is for people to see the number of calories before they order...
And what if the don’t comply?
F U B O! effing traitor!
Thanks for the ping!
If you need it for easy reference, it lives on my FR profile page along with several other good ones.
