Letter to FDA Regarding Allergen Advisory Statements for Wheat on Foods Labeled Gluten-Free

Gluten Free Watchdog’s first call to action for Celiac Disease Awareness Month 2019 was a request for the community to submit photos of product labels that included both a gluten-free claim and an allergen advisory statement for wheat. The response was overwhelming. Thank you! Some of the photos are included in the attached letter to FDA regarding advisory statements. Please read the letter and let me know if you have any questions. https://www.glutenfreewatchdog.org/news/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/CallToActionMayContainStatementsFDA3.pdf

    This is unbelievable! How can these producers be allowed to get away with this dangerous, confusing information?Hopefully us in the UK are not heading for a situation like this. As far a s I’m aware our labelling is unambiguous,. After Brexit hits, who knows!?

    I see this all the time, and it is incredibly confusing. It cannot be both!

    They don’t realize they are destroying our trust in manufactured foods, Period. I am super sensitive and am unable to buy many manufactured foods. Now is the final blow. I can’t even eat certified foods! Ridiculous !!

    After being sickened numerous times, this is exactly why I stopped eating processed foods.
    Thank you for all your hard work in keeping us safer.

    Beware: When in the produce section, I noticed a woman eating a cookie and digging through the broccoli while dropping crumbs and glutenous fingers touched much of the produce. Pick from the back or ask for fresh.
