article imageFDA warns Nestle over misleading labels

By Wang Fangqing     Dec 23, 2009 in Health
Swiss giant food maker Nestle received warning letter from the U.S. authority regarding the misleading claim it puts on two products -- Juicy Juice and Boost Kid Essentials Nutritionally Complete Drink.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration released a warning letter on December 22, saying three products of Nestle -- Juicy Juice Brain Development Fruit Juice Beverage (Apple), Juicy Juice All-Natural 100% Juice Orange Tangerine and Juicy Juice All-Natural 100% Juice Grape -- contain unauthorized nutrient content claims, reports Reuters.
For example, the statement "no sugar added" on the brain development drink is not permitted for foods targeting children under age 2, according to the letter.
In a separate December 3 letter, the FDA said Nestle's Boost Kid Essentials Nutritionally Complete Drink, in vanilla, chocolate and strawberry flavors, was labeled as a "medical food" but did not meet requirements for the claim.
Pam Krebs, a spokeswoman for Nestle Beverage, said they are working closely with the FDA "in bringing this matter to a conclusion."
