Misbranded Stay Slim Food Products

State Agriculture Commissioner Nathan L. Rudgers alerted consumers today that certain Stay Slim brand food products do not contain the amounts of fat, protein, carbohydrates, sugar, calories and sodium listed on the label.  Stay Slim, Inc., 100-09 101st Ave., Ozone Park, New York, 11416 distributes the products and is voluntarily recalling the products named below.

Stay Slim brand food products are sold at Stay Slim Diet Clubs in the New York City and Long Island area.

Misbranding of the Stay Slim products was brought to the attention of the Department by WCBS-TV in New York which conducted its own investigation and sampling of the products.  Analysis of certain Stay Slim Brand food products at the Departmentís Food Laboratory have found nutritional values both above and below label claims.  Information about the products sampled and found to be misbranded is attached.
