Gluten Free Watchdog has approved the following statement regarding the test results for Bart and Judy’s gluten-free chocolate chip cookies.

(on a personal note, full disclosure: I am a subscriber)
“Gluten Free Watchdog, LLC recently tested a box of Bart and Judy’s Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies for gluten contamination using the R5 ELISA Mendez method. The product tested well above 20 parts per million of gluten. Detailed test results are available only to subscribers of Gluten Free Watchdog. Test results provide a snapshot picture of the gluten content of this product at one point in time. There is no way of knowing without testing many more samples whether the results of the one sample tested are representative of the gluten content of this product as a whole.”

**italics are mine** because I am trying to drive the point home.
