Clifton Bakery Shut Down for Mislabeled Muffins

A New Jersey bakery has closed after federal officials found sugar in sugar-free items and fat content well above what was on the labels.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says a federal judge approved an injunction against Clifton-based Butterfly Bakery and its president for unlawfully distributing mis-branded food.

The FDA says tests showed the company’s product labeling was false and misleading.

Laboratory analysis found certain foods labeled sugar-free contained sugar. Another had 360 percent in excess of the saturated fat listed on the label.

The company, on its Facebook page, says it acknowledges the claims made by the FDA and voluntarily entered into the decree halting business.

The company says the FDA’s concerns involved only three of its 45 products.
