Caught! Butterfly Bakery in Edison, New Jersey, will shut down due to their faulty food labeling.
According to The Associated Press, the bakery has been selling goods labeled as sugar-free but in fact hold sugar.
Butterfly Bakery has been known to make products that can be eaten by a diabetic audience and also has been selling their products worldwide, stated Top News.
There was a complaint made against the bakery on February 1 that encouraged research.
Upon delving deeper into the situation, the Food and Drug Administration has found that there are at least to three times more fat or sugar in some products that have been “securely” labeled as being sugar-free.
Since this has been proven, Butterfly Bakery has been ordered to close its doors until they can adhere to the standards of the Food and Drug Administration.
“The injunction demonstrated that FDA will seek action against companies that mislead consumers. Until Butterfly Bakery meets FDA regulations, it will no longer be able to process or distribute their products,” said Melinda K. Plaisier, the agency’s Assistant Commissioner for regulatory affairs.
