Boston Market has pledged to help its customers reduce salt intake. This follows the announcements last year from a few other fast food chains that also made a reduction in sodium content: Carl's Jr.'s hamburger buns, El Torito's sauces and Taco Bell's entire menu.
There will be no more salt shakers at tables at the chain's 476 locations, USA Today first reported. Boston Market said in a statement that it will have salt shakers available at a condiment station, but that this change will prompt customers to taste their food first before automatically putting more salt on.
The restaurant is also going down the path of other restaurants in lowering sodium levels. Signature items -- mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese and rotisserie chicken -- will get a 20 percent decrease in sodium, while other menu items will get a 15 percent decrease in sodium by 2014, Boston Market said in the statement.
