When Can Ingredient Lists be Omitted?

A local farm market/retailer packages its own dried fruit and other snack items. Many of the packages list only the main ingredient (e.g., cantaloupe or pineapple), even when sugar and/or other ingredients have been added as part of the preservation or preparation process.


This is completely against federal labeling regulations. All packaged products, regardless of the size of the company manufacturing or selling them, must show a complete list of ingredients in order of decreasing predominance by weight. And it must be in the format of "Ingredients: [ingredients listed by "common or usual name" here]" so that it is obvious what is being declared.
