A New Jersey bakery that specializes in low-sugar, sugar-free, and gluten-free treats closed indefinitely after officials claimed it mislead consumers. The FDA and state officials found that some of their products contained sugar, allergens, and far more fat than was listed on the labels.

The crackdown was a warning for consumers: If it tastes too good to be healthy, it might be.

The FDA also sent a message to retailers, citing in a statement to press, that they plan to take action against "companies that mislead consumers on the products they purchase."

In the meantime, the FDA is making an example of Butterfly Bakery in Clifton, New Jersey. “Until Butterfly Bakery meets FDA regulations, it will no longer be able to process or distribute their products," Melinda K. Plaisier, the FDA’s acting associate commissioner for regulatory affairs, said in a statement.

Butterfly Bakery sold its baked goods online and shipped them to grocery stores around the country. Company owner Brenda Isaac acknowledges the FDA's claims and confirmed that the bakery is presently closed.

"Laboratory analysis showed that foods labeled as 'sugar free' contained sugar, and that certain products contained as much as three times the amount of labeled/declared sugar, two times the amount of labeled/declared fat, and two times the amount of labeled/declared saturated fat," the FDA claimed.

probably just ignorant. he probably equates sugarfree to sugar replacement/equivalent or artificial sweetener. which in baked goods often are not the case and they are in fact sugarfree. and even if it was another artificial sweetener or sugar replacement, not all of them are bad for you. but then again, sugar in itself isn't necessarily bad for you either, unless you're diabetic.Contrary to popular belief, sugar doesn't make you fat, it can help do it in certain situations, sure.

Think he is talking about Phenylalanine or whatever its called but Im not sure why he would be presuming it is in the baked goods, and also why it was worded "the sugar-free is very dangerous for your health" ??!!?LOL

I ate that pringle with light made with Olean brand olestra oil, but I hate them so much already. I research about this, and they are very dangerous that they will make you so fat. I already throw them away. Same as Sugar-free are very dangerous. The real sugar came from sugar cane plant they are safest. Olean brand olestra oil is part of chemcials. I don't trust USA health anymore, because they wants more money.

Ah, just read up on it. Any product that reduces fat absorption will, as a matter of course, cause loose stools. That's because you're absorbing less fat! Duh! Stupid people.
