As warning labels go, the small salt shaker emblems that began showing up on some New York City restaurant menus recently are fairly unobtrusive, but each is supposed to carry a powerful message.The city began requiring chain restaurants to post the warnings in December.But customers interviewed Tuesday at several city restaurants said the labels were unlikely to change what they ordered.New York City's regulation applies to restaurants and fast-food places with more than 15 outlets nationwide.Researchers at the New York University School of Medicine who reviewed 31 studies on calorie labeling concluded in a Journal of Community Health article published in December 2014 that its effect on diners was "marginal".Panera Bread changed some ingredients in three menu items to lower the salt content, including its signature bread bowl.
