I got the same message. I have screen shots of my two comments but have no clue how to post them (they're saved on my desktop for now). Would we have to upload them to photo bucket or one of those sites?

I don't know! :blink: I don't know how to screen print. I have no key for that, so I suppose I need to know the magic incantation for it?

Hold down the ALT button and press Print Screen (which is above the numeric thingie on my keyboard. Then I took it into a graphics program and right clicked "Paste as New Image". I happen to use Paint Shop Pro. Sorry, I have a feeling this is clear as mud. blink.gif

I just posted this on Domino's Facebook page:

I believe you are misusing the term "gluten-free" in a way that could lead to those with celiac disease being injured. Are you aware that McDonald's was sued for less, and that it nearly became a class action lawsuit against them?

Ok, I hope this works for you, but follow these steps:

  • After you hit print screen or Function & Print Screen, you need to open up a photo editor like photoshop, then open a new file and hit Control V or paste (the image is saved on your clipboard). You should then be able to save it to your local computer, and remember the location you save it to.
  • Click "use the full editor" button to add the it to a post here.
  • Click "Choose File" then "Attach This File"
  • Then you will see that it was uploaded just below the text box, and click "Add to Post"

I just saw some post that people were writing on Domino's FB wall. They are very interesting.

Even people with celiac disease are trying this new pizza and are happy with it because nothing happened to them after eating it.

Currently they have 121 post.

someone on that FB page wrote:

" I didn't know that symptoms of Celiac's disease included being extra complainy"

(it's gone now)

You ass hat.

A woman who says she has celiac disease said: "I can eat small amounts and not notice anything, so this is great".

:blink:

One more: " To all those people saying "What's the point?", not everyone who is gluten sensitive has Celiac disease. Like me, I can't eat gluten, or I will get sick, so this is perfect for me! "

Whaaa?? Idiots.

here's the deal:

People will eat it.

People will get sick.

so be it.

OK I've got to defend Domino's (at least a little). My son is not celiac, he is on a gluten-free diet for his autism. We have discovered that he can handle limited amounts of gluten, so we don't worry excessively about CC. We see behavior changes when he gets a lot of it (i.e. several meals or days in a row) but can do the occasional birthday cake or grilled cheese sandwich with no problem. So in theory, this would be a way that he could have pizza from a restaurant and still "keep his gluten down."

I definitely understand what you all are saying, particularly the concerns of people with Celiac who see the words "gluten free" and assume that it's safe. I think there is a market for what Domino's is doing, but I can't imagine that my son's situation is all that common.

That's fine if they call it something other than gluten free and it is not endorsed by any celiac organization.

Kelly, I agree!

But there is a small pocket of people who will benefit, as your family. For those with a limited gluten sensitivity, this is good news. I mention this in my first post here.

And it will get the fad-gluten-free-dieters.

I think it's the marketing ploy that is disturbing most of us, as mushroom indicated.

This is what got me all "hot under the collar" as well.

Just wanted to add, if you're using a Mac you can take two types of screenshots: Shift-Cmd-3 will take a screenshot of your whole screen and save it to your desktop. Shift-cmd-4 will take a screenshot of an area that you select on your screen, and then save it to your desktop. Since image attachments don't seem to be working correctly on the forums, you can use a hosting service like http://tinypic.com/ or http://imageshack.us/ to upload them.

I posted Dr. Fasano's press release on the Domino's facebook page. Wonder how long before they delete it!

I don't see it so I'm assuming it got deleted. It's really annoying seeing lots of negative comments and then look back the next day and seeing tons of positive comments. It's just dishonest.

From Gluten Intolerance Group FB :

Open Letter to Alice Bast, Exec Director, NFCA

May 12, 2012

Alice,

NFCA needs to remove the Amber designation from the Dominos "gluten-free" pizza. It is not safe for anyone requiring a gluten-free diet for medical reasons. NFCA's reputation as a respected organization is suffering by giving a useless Amber designation to Domino's gluten-free pizza. I implore you to consider the community we all support and want to help. Make the GREAT Kitchen's Amber designation disappear for good.

There is inherent liability in the GREAT Kitchens Amber designation that will have serious ramifications to the food industry and those of us who are working to make a difference for all persons living gluten free.

1. Dividing the gluten free community is wrong. All persons living a gluten-free life style should have the same safe options in foods. Nearly the entire world accepts a definition for what gluten-free means. Stricter is better, but less than the standard is unacceptable. It goes against everything science tells us.

2. The GREAT Kitchens Amber sign is a useless designation for restaurants that causes confusion and consequently mistrust of the restaurant industry and the organizations who are working so hard to help them. The Amber designation sets us back years on all the strides we have made to get the food industry to embrace safe gluten-free foods.

Thursday night I listened to the Jules' Gluten-Free Radio talk show with you as her guest. I have tried to make sense of your position for the GREAT Kitchens program Amber designation. I cannot understand why you are so passionate about a decal that sends mixed messages. The decal clearly states "GLUTEN-FREE" and 'Kitchen practices may vary". In a press release, you state NFCA

On gaurd celiacs! Dominos adventure into gluten free cooking is dangerous...What safegaurds them from lawsuits is in their manual, stating that it is only to be referred to as a "gluten-free crust". Once that crust leaves the wrapper it is no longer a safe gluten-free pizza. Upon visiting a local Dominos I witnessed first hand the preparation process. The gluten-free pizza crust was on a shelf where all other gluten containing items were. They use the same topping buckets, utensils, spoons, pizza cutters, and spatulas. I was horrified!

This stunt sets gluten free standards back and dummies down the seriousness of a safe gluten-free environment. Watch out, others will be joining in soon. This will make it 10 times more difficult for Celiacs and Gluten intolerant people to safely enjoy gluten-free dining in a safe and healthy way. If a standard is raised and met by domino's they will be my hero...If they do not, they will be hurting hundreds of thousands of people...unforgivable!

I agree...big companies like this want to cash in now on the gluten-free market, even if they can't really offer something gluten-free. I still can't believe that the NFCA backs this, but am really glad to see Dr. Fasano and the GIG take the correct side here, as this is really a serious set back, rather than a step forward. I don't think that Domino's understands that McDonald's was sued for much less than what is going on here when they used to call their French fries gluten-free (which they likely are, but they have wheat in a flavoring ingredient in the hydrolyzed form--and the do use dedicated vats, at least by company policy). Anyway, McDonald's quit using the term "gluten-free" on their fries after that. In this case the contamination issues are already known--Domino's admits it up front--yet they are still using the term. They'd better get all people who buy this to sign a waiver, as I can smell a lawsuit coming!

    • Here is another point.  My hubby went gluten-free per the poor advice of his GP and my allergist.  It worked.  A tough first year, but he got well.  Thirteen years later, I got diagnosed with celiac disease.  I was shocked!  😱.   Does he have celiac disease?  We will never know because we can not afford to have him do a challenge.  He refuses and I can not blame him.  He knows he will be very sick!   The point?  I am so lucky that we both can not have gluten.  I never worry about him making me sick or vice versa. We made the house completely gluten free for  1) our health and 2) the fact that our kid started helping in the kitchen. Kids make mistakes and I personally need a safe haven.  She wants gluten?  I buy prepackaged stuff and she takes it to school.  All parties and events at my house are gluten free.  Lots of work, but we stay healthy.  She does not have celiac disease.  When she is preparing for a celiac test,  I send her on the porch to eat cookies or bread or whatever floats her boat.  We travel in a gluten-free RV.  I have five sizes of ice chests.  We just have to be prepared for any event.   How can we live this way?   We love feeling good.
    • Freize is right, you need to think about your environment.   Based on that a study I posted for you, you will note that the patients who were diagnosed with refractory celiac disease and THOUGHT they were diet compliant found that they WERE NOT diet compliant.  How is this possible?   This is way out there, but unless you are growing all your own food, you don't really know if it is gluten free.  In the US, we do have laws to help protect our food supplies (no perfect, but a start).    I can not speak for India.  For example, what about your soy?  It can be contaminated by the farmer as it is often rotated with wheat.  Here is an article by Jane Anderson who has celiac disease.  She is very strict as she has DH (celiac rash), but she cites Trisha Thompson who tests foods for gluton contamination, The gluten-free WatchDog (like Consumer reports).  She found that soy which is naturally gluten free, but can be cross contaminated by wheat: https://www.verywell.com/is-soy-gluten-free-562371 so, start thinking about your food supply. As far as a negative TTG IGA or TTG IGG?  I test negative to both.  Only the DGP IGA has ever been elevated in my blood tests (even repeats), yet I had a Marsh Stage IIIIB on my biopsy.  Have you had a DGP IGG?  (I do not see this in your posting).   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ These additonal celiac tests might help you feel confident that you have celiac disease and not something else that is damaging your villi.  But remember, some  folks have celiac disease even with negative blood.  I am not IGA deficient, so this is an area I have not researched.  Not to mention that some celiac researchers do not think that the celiac  antibodies tests are good for diet compliancy.   I wish I had better answers for you.  Try a grain free, whole foods diet of meats, fish, eggs, and vegetables for a while.  All food prepared by you. Who cooks your food now?  Is your home gluten free?  Cross contamination at home?  Kissing a loved one.  We had a doctor with celiac disease who was getting glutened by her little children who were consuming gluten!  
    • I won't say I will never eat out but I can't see me eating out for the foreseeable future. Even then, I will most likely only eat at a dedicated gluten free place. I am extremely sensitive to the tiniest amount of gluten and it's just not worth the risk to me. Eating out is playing Russian Roulette as far as I'm concerned and I'm not ready to play that game yet.
    • You are right. The weirdest part is that I feel fine, however, I am sure cross-contamination is doing damage even when we don't think it is.
