Nestle Juice Drinks Breach Regulations


The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning letter which states that many of Nestle’s Juicy Juice products are misbranded as their labelling breaks FDA regulations.

In the letter, the FDA states that the Juicy Juice Brain Development Fruit Juice is misbranded under section 403 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act as the label makes claims about its nutrient content that are unauthorised.

Labelling on the product reads: “Helps support developmentĀ…in children under two years old.”

The beverage’s website also makes similar claims and the FDA said that, except for statements that describe the percentage of a vitamin or mineral in relation to recommended daily allowance (RDI), claims of nutrient content should not be made for beverages aimed at infants and children less than two years of age, unless they are specifically permitted by FDA regulations.

Nestle’s Juicy Juice website claims the beverages to be made from 100 per cent fruit juice with no added sugar. The soft drinks come in a variety of flavours including apple, berry and cherry.
