FDA wants bakery to remove “love” from list of granola ingredients

(WTNH)–There’s a bit of controversy in Massachusetts, as feds are going after one bakery that claims its granola is “made with love.”

Nashoba Brook Bakery in Concord lists “love” as one of its ingredients. The FDA says that needs to change.

Federal regulations require that ingredients be listed by their common or usual name, and the FDA says “love” is not a common or usual name of an ingredient.

Nashoba Chief Executive Officer John Gates told Bloomberg that he thought that part of the FDA’s letter “just felt so George Orwell.”

“Situations like that where the government is telling you you can’t list ‘love’ as an ingredient, because it might be deceptive, just feels so silly,” Gates said.
