RL Laboratories

We provide nutritional information using US FDA compliant nutrition label software, with the accuracy of the label content 100% dependent on what we receive from you, our clients. Laboratory service results are dependent on both the input we receive from you regarding the ingredients in your product and the quality of the product sample you send to us. Product quality is dependent on the product temperature when shipped, the container used to ship your product to us and the integrity of the sample we receive from you. We are not responsible for any errors that may occur based on your input or the poor product quality we receive from you. RL Food Testing Laboratory is not responsible for any consequential or other damages. All claims against RL Food Testing Laboratory are limited to the cost of services rendered.
