San Francisco Mandates Breakfast Contents

This is the level of totalitarian micromanagement businesses and their customers are already subjected to in the liberal dystopia of San Franfreakshow:
While all of the media buzz about San Francisco's assault on fast food restaurants has been focused on toys found in kids' meals, the Board of Supervisors last week decided to take a shot at regulating "breakfast items" marketed to adults, too.
According to a Sept. 27 amendment to the city's proposed Happy Meal toy ban ordinance, "a new category of items — breakfast items — are required to contain 0.5 cups of fruit. A Meal must now also contain whole grains where bread is part of the offering."
The amendment defines "Whole grains" as "Bread, such as a hamburger bun or other sandwhich, that is part of a Meal must be made with at least 50 percent whole wheat."
Surprisingly, they haven't yet passed a regulation regarding how many times you must chew each mouthful of government-mandated fruit before you can swallow.
On a tip from Henry.
