Dear FDA:

Please do not use a "zero tolerance" for gluten- free labeling or regulations. This will cause many gluten-free food companies to discontinue their use of the term "gluten-free" on their labels out of fear of litigation--which is counterproductive for all people with this disease (most, if not all, gluten-free food companies do not grow, transport or mill the gluten-free grains that they use as ingredients--a fact that will make them vulnerable to litigation if a zero tolerance level is adopted).

Thank you,
Helena Kosorek
