Whole Foods has announced that by 2018, all products in U.S. and Canada stores must be labeled if they contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs). This is the first national grocery store to set a deadline from GMO labeling.

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

Whole Foods Grocery is so dang expensive.   When the labeling hits my local Kroger store that will be great, assuming I'm still alive at that point.

Completely agree Colleen...I never shop at Whole Foods because they charge too much...well since we first flipped four years ago....I am - however - just thrilled that one chain has made a stand...was very disappointed when Monsanto and pals flooded our state with millions of dollars this past November when it looked as though our GMO labeling law was going to pass.
