FDA Supports Food Allergen Labeling Bill
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I foundedÂ The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.View all articles by Scott Adams

The Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act will provide improved food labeling to better inform consumers who suffer from food allergies.
Having the endorsement of the FDA will be key as we look ahead to floor action by the full Senate in early 2004.
