2013 Senate Bill 730: Mandate restaurant manager food allergy training

Public Act 516 of 2014

The bill would also mandate that restaurants post a notice to customers on the menu or a window sticker that customers have an obligation to inform the server about any food allergies, and mandate a food allergy poster be posted in the non-public part of the restaurant.   Official Text and Analysis.
