On July 19, 2007, King County Board of Health adopted two new regulations affecting food establishments in King County:
- A trans fat regulation that requires all establishment with a food permit from Public Health – Seattle & King County to remove artificial trans fat from their cooking process
- A menu labeling regulation that would require chain restaurants to label calorie, saturated fat, sodium and carbohydrate information on menus and menu boards.
On March 12, 2008, the Board of Health adopted changes to the menu labeling regulation, renaming it nutrition labeling, limiting it to chain restaurants with 15 or more national locations and allowing different ways for restaurants to display the nutrition information as long as the information is available at the point of purchase.
