FDA Closes Butterfly Bakery After Finding Sugar in “Sugar Free” Food

By on March 19, 2013

Federal regulators closed a New Jersey bakery after discovering sugar in its “sugar free” products and saturated fat in its “fat free” treats, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced on March 15.

The Clifton-based Butterfly Bakery Inc., which marketed food as “Made with 100% Love,” was force to close its doors after a federal judge granted a permanent injunction against the company.

The bakery was charged with dishonestly misbranding food products as “sugar free” and “fat free” when they actually contained as much as three times the amount of disclosed sugar and two times the amount of disclosed saturated fat, the FDA said

“They have had repeated violations,” FDA spokeswoman Tamara Ward told Reuters. “This is when we take action.”
