It really does not seem to matter how many ppl react, nor the postive test results for gluten in the ingredients for the fries... the die hard mcd's fans (many even on this forum) refuse to stop calling the fries gluten-free so ppl like you reap the consequences. I am sorry you had to find out the hard way. :(

As I posted on dally099's other thread..... even the published product sheet from McDo's actually says in black and white that they contain detectable "proteins from wheat" ...

Of course the paper starts with a negative test and only passignly mentions the positive more accurate one... but people will read into that what they want to read into it....

Or as my sig translates "man will willingly believe what he wants to believe"
