Burger chain Burgerville in Washington and Oregon is known for using local ingredients and sustainable business practices to make fast food that's healthier and more environmentally conscious. To better inform customers of what they're eating, they've been printing customized nutritional information on receipts with the Nutricate System since August. Cabel Sasser of cable.name put up a scan of his receipt outlining the calorie, fiber, fat, and carbohydrate content of the items he bought, minus the ingredients he left off when ordering. (Alas, he didn't order any beef-based burgers.)
