New Labels For Vending Machines

The next time you head for the office vending machine for a snack you will have some reading to do.

Under new labeling regulations for vending machines included in President Barack Obama's health care overhaul law calorie information will now have to be displayed on roughly 5 million vending machines nationwide.

The Food and Drug Administration estimates the cost to the vending machine industry will be $25.8 million initially and $24 million per year after that.

The idea is that if people have calorie information they will eat healthier foods and that will cut the obesity rates.

The rules will apply to about 10,800 companies that operate 20 or more machines.
