The Cheesecake Factory has had a dish labeled "food porn" by the nonprofit group Center for Science in the Public Interest.

The restaurant has had its Bistro Shrimp Pasta dish added to an annual list of restaurant dishes chosen by the group to be described as "food porn," for their high calorie content.

The list is compiled to make people more aware of super-calorie dishes in an effort to make people more health conscious and help America keep a healthy heart.

The list is dubbed the Xtreme Eating list, and lays out a number of dishes that are sure to pack diners with calories and contribute to their waistlines.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest has been a prominent fighter for calories to be displayed in all restaurant menus in America, so people can stay better informed, and also to hold restaurant and eatery owners more accountable for what they are serving.

The Cheesecake Factory's Bistro Shrimp Pasta dish is listed as having 3,120 calories, and has a "butter and cream sauce" along with "battered, fried shrimp."

The meal can also be broken down to reveal further evidence of its unhealthy nature; it comes with 89 grams of saturated fat, as well as 1,090 milligrams of sodium.

CSPI senior nutritionist Jayne Hurley has said to CNN: "We think this year that this is the worst of some of the worst. They top the list for being extremely high in calories, saturated fat and salt or sugar."

Another popular American chain restaurant that made the list was Johnny Rockets. Its bacon cheddar double burger with sweet potato fries and a Big Apple shake offers 3,500 calories as well as 88 grams of saturated fat.
