FDA Says 'Love' Isn't a Food Ingredient
The Food and Drug Administration sent a letter to Massachusetts company Nashoba Brook Bakery on Sept. 22, rebuking them for, among other things, including "love" on the ingredient list for the company's granola.
"Your Nashoba Granola label lists ingredient 'Love,'" the FDA pointed out in its letter to the bakery. "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."
Wow, okay, FDA.
