FDA Warns Hershey Over Chocolate Syrup Claims

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned Hershey Co about making nutritional claims about its chocolate syrups that don't meet regulatory guild lines.

Specifically, the labels on Hershey's Syrup+Calcium and its Syrup Sugar Free with Vitamin & Mineral Fortification violate federal laws by claiming things not up to guidelines.

The company can't use the terms "plus" or "fortification" because their nutritional contents aren't actually high enough to be considered beneficial.

Hershey fixed the problem by simply removing the words from their products.

We guess it's easier to change a label than to change a formula.

You shouldn't be getting your vitamins from chocolate syrup anyway.

That's what the Flintstones are for! LOLz!
