Where’s the love? Apparently, not at the FDA.
On September 22 the FDA issued Warning Letter CMS# 532236 to Nashoba Brook Bakery, of Concord, Mass. Among several infractions cited in the letter was one for the misbranding of granola bars—misbranding that must be corrected within 15 days to avoid penalties.
What was this dangerous misbranding? The granola bar label included love as an ingredient. And, as the warning letter points out, “love is not a common or usual name of an ingredient.” Then what is it? Well, the letter explains, it is “intervening material because it is not part of the common or usual name of the ingredient.”
Maybe you knew that love isn’t actually an ingredient. But did you know that it’s intervening material?
