The "fat free" and "sugar free" muffins and cupakes produced at the Butterfly Bakery in Clifton, New Jersey, tested at three times the stated amount of sugar and two times the amount of saturated fat listed on packaging, Reuters reports, so the FDA pulled the plug on their convection ovens. The agency released a statement explaining that the bakery, which maintains its products are "made with 100% Love," had a preexisting rap sheet. And, seemingly, difficulty using measuring cups: One muffin had "444 percent more saturated fat than what was listed on the label," reports ABC. "This is when we take action," said a spokeswoman.
