The Center for Science in the Public Interest filed suit today in the Superior Court of New Jersey in Middlesex County, seeking to compel Denny's to disclose on menus the amount of sodium in each of its meals and to place a notice on its menus warning about high sodium levels. CSPI is working with the New Jersey firms of Galex Wolf, LLC and Williams Cuker Berezofsky.

The great majority of Denny's meals is dangerously high in sodium, putting its customers at greater risk of high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke.

Most Americans should consume no more than 1,500 milligrams of sodium per day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But at Denny's, the great majority of its meals contain more, and in some cases, several times more. Some meals at Denny's provide more than 4,000 or 5,000 mg of sodiumómore than most adults should consume in three days. Diets high in sodium are a major cause of high blood pressure, which in turn is a major cause of heart disease and stroke, the first- and third-leading causes of death in the United States.

Some examples of the high-high-sodium fare at Denny's:

    * Moons Over My Hammy, a ham, egg, and cheese sandwich, has 2,580 mg of sodium by itselfómore than even a healthy young person should consume in a day. It's served with hash browns (adding 650 mg of sodium) or grits (an additional 840 mg).

    * The Super Bird sandwich, served with regular French fries, has 2,610 mg of sodiumómore than twice what someone with high blood pressure should consume in a day.

    * Denny's Meat Loverís Scramble, which has two eggs with chopped bacon, diced ham, crumbled sausage, Cheddar cheese, plus two bacon strips, two sausage links, hash browns, and two pancakes has 5,690 mg sodium, or 379 percent of the advised daily limit.

    * A full meal at Denny's consisting of a bowl of clam chowder, a Spicy Buffalo Chicken Melt, and a side of seasoned fries contains an alarmingly high 6,700 mg of sodium. It's a big meal, to be sure, with about 1,700 calories. But thatís more sodium than what 70 percent of Americans should consume in four and a half days.

I cant imagine that anyone who eats at dennys thinks the food is good for them. I mean come on, ham, bacon, hash browns... its not exactly fruit and veggies. That being said,they should make available to the customer the sodium content of some of these meals. I dont think that is to much to ask.  although, most people who are eating at dennys probably arent concerned enough to bother checking out whats in the food.

The man in the article who initiated this has high blood pressure and is on medication so WTH would he be eating at a place like dennys anyway.   Question

Dennys is great when its 3 AM, you're drunk or stoned and are jonesing for some breakfast food.  The food hits the spot and most importantly...stays in your stomach.  Other than that, I wouldn't really eat there.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

OK, guys, all together . . .

NOTHING served in a restaurant is good for you.

Virtually all of it tastes better than what you cook yourself.

Enjoy stuff that tastes good, in moderation.

We all have to die of something.

Man, that meat-lover's scramble sounds good right now!
