The quality of our licensed products, including the accuracy of the labels, is of the utmost importance to us, and we have quality controls in place with our licensees to ensure this. In particular, Weight Watchers requires manufacturers to conduct rigorous testing on product samples and provide full lab results from a designated independent and credentialed testing facility on nutritional information for our review. The test results Wells Enterprises has provided to us to date reflect that the products meet our quality standards and are consistent with the nutrition labels on the packaging.
