In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
No allergic reactions have been reported. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy or wheat run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reactions if they consume these products. Signage is posted in Whole Foods Market stores to notify customers of this recall.
Consumers who have purchased Whole Foods Market Stout Beer Marinade and Whole Foods Market Lager Beer Marinade may return the product to the store for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Whole Foods Market at 301-683-0060 weekdays between 8:00am and 5:00pm eastern standard time.
As always, Celiac.com welcomes your comments (see below).
