I remembering doing a thread on this months earlier with Santa Clara. It looks like the idiot food police have made their way from Santa Clara to San Fransisco to ban happy meal toys.

Toys that have been synonymous with kids’ meals at fast-food restaurants could soon be banned in San Francisco under a new law proposed Tuesday if the food contains too much fat, sugar or salt.
Earlier this year, Santa Clara County became the first local government in the nation to adopt such a law, but it only applies to unincorporated areas and affects a handful of restaurants.
San Francisco’s proposal could have a far greater impact. The restrictions would pertain to all restaurants but effectively would target the dozens of fast-food establishments in the city, among them McDonald’s, Jack in the Box and Burger King.
San Francisco’s legislation would not prohibit toy giveaways outright, but limit them to menu items that meet strict nutrition guidelines.
For example, no single item could contain more than 200 calories or 480 milligrams of sodium. An entire meal could have no more than 600 calories.
That would wipe out all but a handful of the Happy Meal offerings at McDonald’s — and none of those options include a small hamburger. Several meet the calorie count, but would fail on the sodium content.
