BRIEFLY

February 18, 1988

Two former executives of Beech-Nut Nutritional Corp. were found guilty of selling apple-flavored sugar water labeled as pure apple juice for babies, said Thomas Roche, assistant U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York. The defendants--former Beech-Nut President Neils L. Hoyvald and a former vice president, John F. Lavery--faced hundreds of violations of federal food and drug laws, and conspiracy and mail fraud charges. Lavery was convicted of all 448 counts in the indictment, Roche said. Hoyvald was found guilty on 351 counts, all violations of federal food and drug law, Roche said.
