I think it's wrong. Check your text.
There seem to be several different minimum recommendations.

"The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend limiting sodium to less than 2,300 mg a day ó or 1,500 mg if you're age 51 or older, or if you are black, or if you have high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney disease."

i dont know none of the numbers in the test match with my choices :(
i still think its D because :
"Previous recommendations suggested that salt intake should be below 2,300 mg per day for American adults, but advised that people at risk -- those with hypertension, blacks, and older individuals -- lower their intake to 1,500 mg."
