I'm guessing that some chili cheese product was inadvertently packaged in regular fritos bags. "Serious life threatening allergic reaction", that's pretty dramatic. I doubt if a 2 oz bag of chili cheese fritos is gonna kill me. Have to give them credit for treating it seriously though. It's possible no one would have really noticed that much.

best regards, lm

Actually Larry,there are people who have celiac to such a degree that they could die from eating such a small amount,it's different for each person. :( I personally know someone who is that sensitive,but on the other hand she never eats things like that that are packaged.

Well Larry, maybe we wouldn't die from it, but some of us certainly may feel like we are. I remember many times before knowing about celiac and being so sick that I would simply ask God, "Please, just take me now, I can't do this anymore!" I never had thoughts of suicide, never truely wanted to die, yet sometimes, I was so tired of hurting, so tired of hours of diarrhea, tired of disappointing my family, etc. I never take a chance on anything anymore. Of course, these Fritos Corn Chips are not a thread for me--I can't have corn!

for people who have anaphylactic reactions to casein and wheat (i.e., true allergies), this is important information to know-it IS life threatening.

Deb,

Rode 300 miles one day. Problem is, I have a 30 mile seat. Not a good combination!

Yes, Pheobe Buffay is a very good girl.

I fostered a pug once named Pheobe Buffet.

I know a kid who has to carry an epi -pen because if he barely touches a wheat containing product, he will go into anaphalaxis. Never would have thought that was possible. His dad owns the gluten free restraunt down the street from my house. Its fabulous.

    •     http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/08/11/coffee-adulterated https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/how-was-your-morning-coffee-did-it-taste-like-mud-v6rfdmrrr92 http://grist.org/food/coffee-taste-like-dirt-thats-because-it-might-be/ " Using liquid chromatography, which identifies the individual chemical components of a mixture, the Brazilian scientists found wheat, soy bean, brown sugar, barley, corn, and rice commonly interspersed with the grounded coffee they tested. Large amounts of wood and dirt were also prevalent, an issue not only for purists who prefer to drink their coffee black, but for those with potential allergies to the unknown additives. As TIME reports, the scientists are identifying the rogue coffee with increasing accuracy:" http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/health/health-news/is-there-wheat-hidden-in-your-coffee/news-story/a3d53a7c36b76156f08d89eab6a396b3   -----   I have also read other references to coffee upsetting those with celiac.   Personally I have a family history of officially diagnosed celiac even though I have never been diagnosed myself..then again Ive never been properly tested. My drs just keep saying the following symptoms are anxiety and wont refer me to a gastroenterologist for:   Loss of bowel control, pale coloured stools, severe bloating, passing undigested food, ataxia, vertigo, migraine headaches, feeling feverish, repeated ulcers on my tongue and in my mouth, feeling generally ill and sleep issues (mostly falling asleep when I dont want to but rarely insomnia).   Because they insist its anxiety as routine blood tests are normal they wont refer me to a gut dr. They did do a blood test for celiac once on my request but it came back negative. This does not phase me when it comes to my suspicians that gluten is an issue for me because:   1 I was on a gluten free diet at the time, hence why i was well enough to crawl to the gps office. 2 I have a family history of celiac 3 MY symptoms are alleviated by a gluten free, dairy free, oat free, corn free diet..and lately, coffee free it seems. Coffee has indeed become a problem for me recently. 4 I could not tolerate gluten based baby foods as an infant. I was admitted to hospital as a baby for being underweight because I was vomitting all my food up. They put me on gluten free formula and i was fine, stopped being sick and gained weight. I could have grown out of it but considering the symtpoms i get on a gluten based diet, i really doubt it.   -----   When it comes to the coffee, food manufacturers will do most anything to make profits if they think they can get away with it. We live in a world where money is most important and if they do get caught...they can always claim they have no idea how the barley got in there!    
    • If you have had a sleep study and been diagnosed, you have sleep apnea. It's definitely different than waking up to go to the bathroom. Are you using your cpap every night for The entire night. Naps too? SA can actually cause death so it's very Important for you to use it every time you sleep. Do you follow up with your doctor yearly? Sorry to sound like the SA police, but I know someone who died from it. He wasn't using his cpap anymore, thought it was uncomfortable.     What Is Sleep Apnea?   Sleep apnea (AP-ne-ah) is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.
    • Summer sausage, rope sausage or link sausage? what were the ingredients? Msg makes me dizzy.
    • I found it confusing as to whether this was gluten or free not.  However, I've not had gluten in two weeks now and had Hillshire Farms beef sausage this morning and my head is literally spinning.  I'm going to assume I shouldn't have eaten it.  It was good......but will avoid it from now on.
    • I've suffered with this for a very long time and never knew it was part of celiac. At age 13 I had the very first episode that I can recall.  Much later in life I had the bad peristalsis that accompanies celiac and would suffer for up to an hour after the initial symptoms began accompanying the D.  Mine would courteously wait until later in the mornings as I would get up at 4AM to get ready for work, and then it would burst upon the scene at about 7:30 AM with a vengeance.  Finally, 17 years ago, I did a search on my computer for causes for D and learned it could be caused by wheat, or celiac most likely.  Afterward I visited my MD who poopoo'd the idea that an adult could possibly have have celiac, her words "That's a children's disease".  She then sent me to gastro for a Sigmo, and it was then labeled IBS.   The symptoms continued until I got all the glutens out of my diet and then there was mostly quiet in my gut.  Then 10 years ago she sent me back to gastro to have a look at why it kept happening, had both upper & lower GI and the old Doc could not confirm anything as by then there was healing. Had it been caught back when I was 13, sure the food choices would have been plain foods instead of the cool pies and cookies offered at home, but better health. BUT, yes Night D does accompany celiac disease.
