FDA Cites Nestle Over Health Claims

Bloomberg News reports that the FDA issued a warning letter on its website finding that "Nestle SA's Juicy Juice and Boost beverages for children violate US rules about marketing health claims." The FDA ordered the firm "to remove claims about the brain development benefits and sugar content of its Juicy Juice product for infants." In addition, the agency "said content labeling for Nestle's orange tangerine and grape juices are 'misleading' because they claimed to be 100 percent juice." Finally, the agency "said Nestle's Boost Kid Essentials Nutritionally Complete Drink is falsely promoted as a 'medical food.'"
