Board of Health Rubberstamps Mayor’s Ban, Goes Against Wishes of New Yorkers
NEW YORK (September 13, 2012) – Despite strong opposition from New Yorkers and business owners throughout the City, the Board of Health today rubberstamped Mayor Bloomberg’s ban on sugar-sweetened beverages larger than 16 ounces – as expected. In keeping with its promise to stand up for the choices of New Yorkers and defend businesses in New York from arbitrary attacks, members of New Yorkers for Beverage Choices are exploring all avenues to challenge the Board’s ruling, including in court.
“The fix was in from the beginning, and the Mayor’s handpicked board followed their orders by passing this discriminatory ban; but it has not passed with the support of New Yorkers,” said Liz Berman, president of Continental Food & Beverage, Inc., and chairwoman of New Yorkers for Beverage Choices. “It’s sad that the board wants to limit our choices. We are smart enough to make our own decisions about what to eat and drink.”
