The Food and Drug Administration does not want Nashoba Brook Bakery's love

We are a nation of laws. Justice is blind. The law should be applied equally to all. Bla bla bla.

In the course of an inspection of Nashoba Brook Bakery, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) discovered some violations, and wrote a letter to Nashoba detailing those violations. One of the violations is documented as follows:

Your Nashoba Granola label lists ingredient "Love". Ingredients required to be declared on the label or labeling of food must be listed by their common or usual name [21 CFR 101.4(a)(1). "Love" is not a common or usual name of an ingredient, and is considered to be intervening material because it is not part of the common or usual name of the ingredient.

Unfortunately, I could not find a copy of the completely fraudulent and misleading label on Nashoba Breads' website, but I don't doubt the FDA. And the FDA's letter has gotten the attention of everyone (I heard about the story via a Bloomberg article.)

One comforting thing - since Nashoba is known as the "slow rise" company, presumably the owners weren't immediately boiled over with anger when they received the FDA's letter.

I'd take the time to warn these people, but they're in Montreal which is outside of the FDA's jurisdiction.
