Syrup makers attack Log Cabin

New Hampshire's maple syrup producers are joining their peers in Vermont in raising concerns about a new imitation maple syrup being sold in the same beige plastic jugs they use.

U.S. Rep. Peter Welch of Vermont has asked the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to investigate whether Log Cabin's 'All Natural Syrup' violates any labeling laws. The company says it's in compliance, but maple producers in Vermont and now New Hampshire say any artificial syrup product calling itself natural confuses consumers and dilutes the value of their pure maple syrup.

Peter Thomson, president of the New Hampshire Maple Producers Association, said stores should segregate the Log Cabin syrup from pure maple syrup.
