FDA asking for less salt

(WFLX) - There could soon be less salt in the foods you eat at restaurants. The Food and Drug Administration is preparing to issue voluntary guidelines asking the food industry to lower sodium levels.

The food industry has already made some reductions. It's prepared for government action since a 2010 "Medical Journal" report said companies had not made enough progress on making foods less salty.
