  1. Thank you! For especially agreeing ....it's either "there is gluten OR no gluten" I wish they would make up their mind! This morning I called Cheerios, because of the labelling on the front "Gluten Free".....On the Regular Cheerios and also the Honey Nut Cheerios there are 2 ingredients: Whole grain oats, oat bran---It is not specified that these ingredients are gluten free unless it says in the actual ingredients gluten-free whole grain oats or gluten-free oat bran. I will not inform my customers (at the supermarket) to purchase these items unless the Company investigates and corrects this outlandish false advertisement of being "gluten free". This poses a huge dis-service to the large population of people with Celiac disease. If there is a single speck of gluten, I would not advise anybody to eat this cereal. Do you want your original symptoms back? I do not! Have we all gone through enough suffering and torment.....Take the gluten out! Whole wheat, bulghur wheat, oat, rye, barley and all of their derivatives should not be eaten by a person with Celiac disease, period! Do all of us have to band together and get a petition to stop Cheerios? Then let's do it!
  2. I have called Progresso Soup and informed them of the FDA or otherwise risk people who have celiac disease to start calling them to change their product labels. Their Progresso Soup that says "Gluten Free" IS NOT GLUTEN FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11 I am fit to be tied because they still put on their list of ingredients modified food starch which IS totally ABSURD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How can Progresso Soup get away with this? I will contact the FDA this time, bnecause I get no answers from Progresso Soup. Who will also get a petition going to make them stop allowing false advertising???? Let's go ...I guess it is up to us to stop this altogether!!!
