Rooibee Red Tea weighs in on FDA nutrition-label proposal
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Rooibee Red Tea says the FDA's new proposed nutrition facts labels would cost the company thousands of dollars.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, co-owner Heather Howell says new artwork would have to be designed because of the space limitation on tea bottles.
The artwork would cost an estimated $30,000.
If the FDA's proposed changes are adopted, companies would be allowed two years to comply with the new rules.
