The McDonalds at the intersection of University Boulevard and New Hampshire Avenue is one of the busiest in the region, and whether you stand in line or drive through you'll know exactly how many calories are in your meal—because it's posted.
But now Prince George's County Council member Eric Olson wants consumers to know how much sodium is in that meal, and he's proposing a bill that would require restaurants with five or more locations in the county to display calorie and salt counts. The bill would affect an estimated 300 establishments of the county's 3,000 restaurants.
A disproportionate number of Prince George's County residents suffer from obesity, hyper-tension and heart disease, and eating too much salt can contribute to all those conditions.
