As the manufacturer of your bars, we have a legal and ethical responsibility to ensure that the bars we produce for you are compliant with the FDA directive that all food products sold in the United States are both safe and free of "misleading representation" and/or "misleading claims" on bar package labels.
We have a 'package indemnity' agreement that allows our clients to take full responsibility for any claims that fall under 'grey areas' within FDA compliance. However, any claims that our Quality Assurance team is concerned MAY be 'black-and-white' violations of FDA compliance rules MUST be reviewed and approved by YouBar's chosen outside legal firm prior to us being able to produce those bars.
The firm will provide a legal opinion to YouBar Inc to determine if YouBar Inc can manufacture bars legally with a label bearing the requested claim. The charge for this process (which does NOT guarantee a positive result) is $500 per claim assessed.
To avoid this process, our clients are encouraged to either choose from existing pre-approved label claims (please speak to your food scientist to find out which apply to you) and/or REMOVE any label claims that have been deemed by our in-house QA department to require this legal review.
