The FDA conducted laboratory analysis of bakery products from The Butterfly Bakery and found that products that were being labeled as 'sugar free' actually contained sugar and had fat levels more than double of what was being displayed on the label.

The agency has now banned the bakery and its president Brenda Isaac from "processing and distributing food until they comply with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and applicable regulations."

"This injunction demonstrates that the FDA will seek enforcement action against companies that mislead consumers on the products they purchase. Until Butterfly Bakery meets FDA regulations, it will no longer be able to process or distribute their products", FDA's acting associate commissioner for regulatory affairs, Melinda Plaisier said.
