The Most Important Thing You Can Do Right Now
Season 1, Ep. 748
The FDA has said it will not consider a petition from the Celiac community to label ALL gluten-containing grains on products (besides the already labeled wheat). Tricia Thompson, MS, RD, Founder of Gluten Free Watchdog, explains the significance of this and what we can do.Please, take 5 minutes tocomment to the FDAwhy this labeling is necessary to protect us (samplelanguage here). We need tomake our voices heard collectively!We all know how important accurate product labeling is to keep us safe. As it stands, the only gluten-containing grain required to be labeled is wheat.We are not protected in the same manner as Celiacs in 62 countries around the world, which expressly require that Gluten be labeled on all packaged foods.The gluten free diet is our only treatment and we need all gluten-containing grains labeled!The FDA has now- unfairly and arbitrary - closed the door on people with celiac petitioning them to get more protective regulation for our labeling.The FDA is required to read all comments. Please share why this would be important - and necessary - to you!COMMENT HERE
