On March 15, the Associated Press reported that a Clifton, N. J. bakery called Butterfly Bakery mislabeled their muffins and other baked goods, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ordered the plant to shut down.
Federal officials found sugar in the baked goods labeled sugar-free, and fat content was higher than stated on the package.
A federal judge agreed to an injunction against Butterfly Bakery and its president for mislabeling the baked goods.
The FDA conducted some research that showed the baked goods, from Butterfly Bakery had product labels that were wrong and misleading.
One of the laboratory test proved that items listed as sugar-free contain sugar. Another study showed 360 percent in excess of saturated fat than what's listed on the label.
Butterfly Bakery known for sugar-free muffins, discovered to have muffins loaded with sugar and fat; this is an extremely dangerous situation for someone who is diabetic. Diabetics have restrictions on their sugar intake if they exceed that amount on a regular basis they can go into diabetic shock, or happen to be fatal.
In an effort to protect themselves, Butterfly Bake wanted their fans on Facebook to know that they accept the FDA claims, and decided to close their business. They also stated that the FDA’s concern was for three of its 45 products for sale.
