Murry's Voluntary Recall of Bell & Evans Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breast Nuggets
- By Scott Adams
- Published 07/17/2015
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 founded 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.
Celiac.com 07/17/2015 - Today, the USDA issued a voluntary recall notice on one item produced at Establishment P-516, Murry's, Inc., in Lebanon, PA.
