Restaurants & Gluten-Free Labeling ClaimsTricia Thompson
Rhonda Kane, MS, RD and I received permission from the Food and Drug Administration to post a statement on restaurants and gluten-free labeling claims. The statement was drafted by Rhonda, a former Consumer Safety Officer with the FDA. Current FDA staff reviewed and slightly revised this statement and granted me permission to post the revision at glutenfreedietitian.com.
This process started back in September at the International Celiac Disease Symposium where there was a lot of confusion about whether restaurants were covered under the gluten-free labeling rule. At that time the FDA agreed to review and edit a statement for posting at glutenfreedietitian.com. Rhonda as usual has done a spectacular job with this write-up which in my opinion is the most thorough and accurate published to date on this issue.
