Yum Brands to add calorie info to menu boards

www.kansascity.com | 10/01/2008 | Yum Brands to add calorie info to menu boards

Curious about how many calories are packed into that burrito or fried chicken you crave? Fast-food company Yum Brands Inc. says it's taking the guesswork out of counting calories.

The parent of KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Long John Silver's and A&W All-American Food said Wednesday it will add product calorie information to menu boards in its company-owned restaurants nationwide.

"We believe this is the right leadership role ... to be providing more information so consumers can make better-informed purchase decisions about the food they eat," Yum spokesman Jonathan Blum said.
