Soda ban to be enforced with measuring cups
The soda ban officially goes into effect tomorrow, and a Daily News exclusive reports today that city health inspectors will be enforcing the mayor’s controversial ban with 17-ounce measuring cups.
Food-serving establishments, from restaurants to arenas to movie theaters, will be prohibited as of Tuesday from serving sugary beverages in containers larger than 16 ounces.
The health inspectors’ measuring cups are apparently intended to allow for a one-ounce margin of error.
Deputy Health Commissioner Daniel Kass reportedly told the Daily News that the measuring cups are specially ordered.
A lobbyist from the National Association of Theatre Owners reportedly requested that “someone please call Jerry Seinfeld to request a reunion show just on this ridiculousness.”
