‘Excess’ Fat and Sugar Get Bakery Closed by the FDA

A Clifton, N.J. bakery has agreed to close after the Food and Drug Administration cited them for violating the law by claiming their products had less sugar and fat than they actually did.

Laboratory analysis showed that foods labeled as "sugar free" from The Butterfly Bakery actually had sugar and up to twice as much as the total fat than what was said on the label.

Butterfly Bakery and its president Brenda Isaac are banned from processing and distributing food until they comply with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and applicable regulations, according to a news release.
