GENERAL
As a consumer with celiac disease, I strongly support any efforts to improve product labeling to identify products containing gluten. At this time due to disparate labeling policies, it is impossible for people suffering from celiac disease to determine if a product contains gluten without doing extensive research, including phone calls and letters to food producers. Even after doing this, there is no guarantee that the information provided by food producers is up to date and accurate.
