Chocolate & nut mix label claims vitamin E, selenium

An organic deluxe fruit and nut mix with dark chocolate is described as being a "good source of vitamin E and selenium antioxidants" on the label and website...


The Nutrition Facts posted on the website does not show a value for either vitamin E or selenium. The product package shows a value of 8% Daily Value for vitamin E, but no amount for selenium. Neither nutrient can be described as a "good source," because a) the nutrient would need to be in the Nutrition Facts table, and b) the amount of that nutrient per serving would need to be at least 10% of DV. This product is not in compliance with US food labeling.

The product is, however (according to the nutrition panel), a good source of iron and low in sodium, but that is not mentioned in the advertising/labeling.
