Your Government At Work

Sydney Brillo Duodenum offers a small quiz this morning. Below is the full text of a press release. See if you can figure out which government agency released it.

Today Yum! Brands, Inc. has taken a great step forward in educating families about the content of the food they are consuming. Yum! Brands is the first national restaurant chain to voluntarily make this information available on their menu boards. As the world’s largest restaurant company in terms of system restaurants, with more than 35,000 locations in over 100 countriesand territories, Yum’s commitment will truly influence the decisions—and eating habits-- of millions of customers. This will not only be helpful for parents in making healthier choices, but hopefully moves us one step closer to eradicating the epidemic of childhood obesity.

Well, of course, there is no fooling Sydney Brillo Duodenum's readership. Who else but a Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission would have something to say about the posting of calorie counts in Taco Bell restaurants?
