UPDATED — Wyldewood Cellars is back in another legal tangle with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, but Wyldewood owner John Brewer calls it a "misunderstanding."
The FDA sent a warning letter to Brewer late last month in response to an October inspection at his manufacturing and processing facility in Peck.
The letter states that its “investigator observed significant deviations from current good manufacturing practice” for dietary supplements.
Brewer says he's a juice concentrate producer.
"They sent us a warning letter based on us producing a dietary supplement ... that we're not producing."
The FDA has had past issues with Wyldewood over its concentrate, and Brewer says he repeatedly has complied with steps the FDA wanted him to take.
"We have, because of the FDA, changed the labeling some six different times," Brewer says. "I'm getting tired of being picked on by these guys."
