The Food Label Detective:
Pepperidge Farm Goldfish® Crackers
in Grab & Go Containers


*FDA 21 CFR 101.9 Nutrition labeling of food. (http://bit.ly/nVsDlD). FDA regulation allows manufacturers to round number of servings to the nearest 0.5 serving, as long as they use the term “about”. Serving size is based on RACC = Reference Amount Customarily Consumed per Eating Occasion.





The label can be misleading, but it is within the FDA Guidelines.*
20 out of 20 consumers thought this was a Single Serving Container.

 Serving Size: 50 pieces (30g/1.1 oz)
130 calories per Servings
ABOUT 2 Servings per Container


Container Size: Net Wt. 2 oz (57g)

Actual yield = 1.9 servings
247 Calories per Container
