NJ Misbranding Defense Lawyers
Protecting Your Business: NJ Misbranding Defense
As a business owner in the United States, one of the legal issues that you may face is misbranding. This offense occurs when your product or service fails to meet statutory requirements for essential information like manufacturer, name or distributor. Additionally, if your product has a misleading or false label, you could be found guilty of misbranding. The Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act (FDCA) formulates laws around such issues and penalizes anyone who sells misbranded products.
The Food and Drug Administration enforces FDCA laws by issuing warnings, fines, injunctions, recalls and even debarments against anyone suspected of being involved in misbranding activities.
In some cases, businesses might face accusations of misbranding without knowledge or due to mistakes made by employees. In such a situation, the involvement of an experienced misbranding defense lawyer from the beginning can work to their advantage.

Examples Of Misbranding Violations
Misbranding can come in different forms with some border consumer product laws at state/federal regulatory agencies also being applicable:
-Denying federal authorities access to your business records during investigations
-Selling intentionally marketed/distributed/manufactured misbranded products
-Not putting proper warning labels or having labels that are unclear
-Untrue health claims on packaging or labels
-Selling pirated drugs for public use
-Failing to either maintain directions on a product or provide them enough to meet safety and efficacy standards set specifically for the drug/product.
-Marketing and selling drugs/products under different names
Adulteration Vs. Misbranding
Differentiating between adulteration (compromised safety, purity, quality) and misbranding can at times be hard due to their similar nature. However, both have different liabilities defined by FDCA laws.
Who Is Liable For Misbranding?
Every party in the distribution chain shares responsibility in cases involving misbranding issues. Manufacturers responsible for labels deemed improper can be held liable as are pharmaceutical companies distributing medications that lack correct labels. Retailers have a legal mandate of providing necessary labeling for any of the items they stock.
Misbranding Criminal Investigations
FDA prosecutes such criminal investigations with local enforcement including law enforcement members from Department of Justice helping out. The offense determines whether criminal proceedings will follow leading to fines, imprisonment with serious consequences resulting from substantial violations.
