"4, Quantity — It is ac-
ceptable for menus to indi-
cate the weight of a food
product before cooking,
rather than the served
weight, but other types of
quantity descriptions may
be misleading. 'For exam-
ple, a bowl of soup should
hold more than a cup of
soup, and a double drink
should be twice the size of a
regular drink.'
. Product Identification
— Although restaurants
are often forced to substi-
tute menu item ingredients
because of delivery prob-
lems or sudden cost in-
creases, 'any substitution
made without notification
to the consumer is mis-
representRtive and decep-
tive. Specifically, patrons
should be able to expect that
maple syrup not merely be
maple-flavored, cream not
be half-and-half and ground
sirloin of beef will not be
regular ground beef or
ground beef with a protein

"• Price --- Service or
cover charges should be
closely disclosed on the
menu, and 'if any extra
charge for special requests
is not brought to the atten-
tion of the consumer at the
time of the request, the con-
sumer will not expect to pay
extra for the order.'
