FDA “Consumer Update” on False or Misleading Labels

In a Consumer Update titled “Foods Must Contain What Label Says,” the FDA explains the steps it takes if it has reason to believe that a food product has been misbranded with information that is false or misleading.  The primary examples  in the article are imported foods such as 100% pomegranate juice and pure honey that were allegedly adulterated with other ingredients.  The article notes that,  “[i]n the case of the pomegranate juice … the burden is on the importer to show that the product labeling is accurate.”  “Otherwise, the juice is not going to make it into the U.S.”
