In the wake of the Happy Meal Ban in San Francisco that requires McDonald's and other fast-food chains to reduce calorie counts and sodium levels in all meals that come with free toys and a statewide law that requires major chain restaurants to list calorie counts on menus starting in 2011, LA plans to revisit and enhance its own restrictions on fast-food chains in neighborhoods known for high rates of obesity, according to United Press International.
