GENERAL
My family has a variety of food allergies including dairy, egg, peanut, and wheat. The labeling and warning of inclusion of these ingredients is vital to keeping these people safe from what hurts them. Now my sister has been diagnosed with celiac disease. She is afraid to eat anything that she has not researched thoroughly for fear of gluten. Please consider adding "This product may contain traces of gluten" on the labels of foods that do. Thank you.
