One last chance to let them know your experience and what needs to be done to protect people with Celiac Disease.
I submitted comment that if it were peanuts, they would not allow a product to state "Peanut Free" on the label, if on the back of the jar, in small print, it said "Processed in a Facility That Also Processes Peanuts"! Why should that be different with gluten? I've been nailed so many times by products like that, until I finally started only buying prepared foods that state "Certified Gluten Free." Really, why should it be OK to double me over with abdominal cramps, sending me back and forth to the bathroom, making me sick to my stomach, kill all the living villi in small intestine, and open me up to a multitude of other auto immune diseases?
