FDA Challenges “Lem-N-Blennd” 1937

On August 31, 1937 a hearing was held between Reymer Brothers and the Chief of the of the Buffalo Station of the Food and Drug Administration of the United States regarding the interstate sale of “Lem-N-Blennd”

During an informal hearing T.F Pappe had on his desk a number of other product purporting to be fruit syrups, which were also under investigation.with Lem-N Blennd considered to be the most high grade.  He suggested the entire industry was being scutinized.

The charge sheet alleged adulteration;  It read

“a mixture of sugar water, lemon juice, and acid has been subsituted wholly or in part for the article and mixed and packed with it so as to lower or injuriously affect it quality or strength.”

Also a misbranding charge that in the opinion of the FDA, the name Lem-N Blennd implies an article consisting entirely of lemon products whereas the consittuents of Lem-N Blennd are not that.

T. F Pappe argued that despite the mis-spelling of Blennd the name implied a lemon product and oranges were also included as part of the ingredients and therfore it was misbranded. and violated regulation 14f.

He said EW Keagy had told government inspector Howard that there were 20-30 pounds of citric acid and 18 crates of lemons to 500 gallons of water—he said Keagy never mention anything about oranges.

In conclusion Pappe said the product was one of two things, imitation lemon juice or lemon flavor syrup. Presumably if either of these phrases were to be used as names instead of “Lem-N Blennd he would be satisfied.

The Keagy Reymer FDA document outlining this hearing suggested as a remedy scraping the name “Lem-N-Blennd”. Its dated September 10, 1937.
