I was recently looking at the ingredients, etc on bread packaging. On looking at a sliced and wrapped loaf from a local bakery it was apparent they provide none. I’ve since observed there is none on sliced and wrapped bread from several other bakeries we purchase from where most convenient. Several appear to use the same generic wrapper.
There are exemptions. Consumers are also back into the realm of state regulation for enforcement.
There are practicalities the code responds to for unwrapped products, and some alternate requirements for providing product information.
I was left wondering though if the exemptions were being abused. Were some or all products sold at a particular bakery as one example, being manufactured by a third party, and sold wrapped without identification or labels?
Arguably not exempt, or is this a grey area for consumer law?
Fresh fruit and veg is perhaps a bigger target, given there are no picked, best by or producer specific details evident in the supermarkets. Although some prepackaged products such as berries and salad mixes do offer such details.
