Do Not Eat At Dominoes!
0

5 posts in this topic

Hi, don't know if this was discussed previously (somehow lost my old sign in) but I feel the need to share that I had a Gluten Free pizza (small $13!!!!!) at Dominoes the other day and payed with sickness for almost two days! I wrote Dominoes about the way their pizzas are prepared.....no one there seems to take any precautions.....and what I got back was a simple *sorry*, but they don't recomend their Gluten Free pizza for folks with Celiac or Gluten allergies. What's up with that?????

Anyhow, just a warning to anyone who gets a craving for a pizza :-). Attached is the email I got

I'm very sorry for the unpleasant experience you had while eating a Domino’s pizza prepared with a Gluten Free Crust. We developed our Gluten Free Crust as an option for consumers with mild gluten sensitivity, not those with celiac disease. Customers with gluten sensitivities should exercise judgment in consuming pizza prepared with this crust.

Our goal is to ensure that all consumers are provided with the appropriate product information needed to make an informed decision about consuming a pizza made with a Gluten Free Crust. While there is no gluten in our crust, no gluten in our pizza toppings (except for Philly Steak and Alfredo sauce), and no airborne flour in our stores, we do understand that by preparing pizzas made with these crusts in a common kitchen with the same equipment that there is a risk for gluten exposure. Therefore, Domino’s DOES NOT recommend this pizza for customers with celiac disease. We do our best to communicate this to customers through a variety of public disclosures in printed materials, online communications and by our store team members. We regret that you were not aware of these disclosures prior to ordering and consuming a pizza made with our Gluten Free Crust.

At Domino’s, we take food safety issues very seriously and will continue to work on educating customers about our Gluten Free Crust. Again, we regret that this experience did not meet your expectations.>>>>>>>

Welcome, again!

 

This has been discussed before, but never a problem to remind folks that simply because any restaurant has items made without gluten ingredients it does not mean those items are safe for those with Celiac Disease.

Dominoes' has been pretty up front about the fact that they do not take any precautions for Celiacs.  I think a few people have talked with their local Dominoes in person and had better luck.

And what the heck is mild gluten sensitivity?  In my mind there is nothing mild about it!

The warnings are all over the place at Dominos. I have reactions with them about 50% percent of the time, my so rarely, so yeah it depends on your sensitivity to cross contamination, addtl ingredients, etc

    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
    • What a gross title–it bothers me and I wrote it! It wasn't my idea originally. The research paper the data came from was entitled, "Experimental hookworm infection and gluten microchallenge promote tolerance in celiac disease" published recently in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

    • katesyl.........this is an older topic so the OP most likely won't answer.  I can, however, offer a piece of advice for you. Just going gluten free will probably not drive your inflammation markers down into normal.  It does depend on how high they were to begin with but with all autoimmune diseases, there will be inflammation going on forever.  Get used to wonky blood work because most of us will have that issue. I have 4 autoimmune diseases in total and, although I have driven certain inflammatory markers way down, my recent sed rate number was elevated.  The normal is supposed to be 30 and under in a woman my age but mine is 50.  With 4 AI diseases, I doubt it will ever be normal and I don't let it bother me. I am not willing to take major meds at all and use more natural anti-inflammatory supplements.  You can do whatever you feel comfortable with in regards to treatment but don't expect normal numbers with Celiac Disease. Inflammation will improve but normal?  Most people never get there completely.
    • My daughter's PCP did not go against anything, she offered to do the biopsy - I was the one opposed to it. My DD, who was 10 at the time had just spent 3 weeks in the hospital, very sick with a ruptured appendix, then had 2 surgeries a few months after. I didn't see the need to put her through anything else with her numbers so high and all the classic symptoms. Apparently, in some other countries, if your numbers are all high, they forego biopsy. Anyway, I was really asking about myself and whether I should push for add'l testing. I am still new this this and trying to get up-to-date and wasn't sure if my PCP should conduct other blood tests before I go completely gluten-free. I have been somewhat gluten-free, but not entirely. I have no problem going gluten-free, but want to make sure that I am doing it for the right reasons. I wasn't sure if the Gliadin Abs IgA was sufficient to point to Celiac and possibly doing a biopsy for me. Or if additional blood test would make more sense.   Thanks!!
    • I would like to know if you have found out the source of your inflammation yet. I'm gluten free three years but my inflammation test was high.
