GENERAL
Please recognize the fact that celiac disease is a serious health threat to many who suffer from it. Proper food labeling is so necessary to those of us who strive to maintain a healthy mind and body so that we can function as good family members, productive employees, and involved citizens in our communities. Celiac disease can be a disabling disease without conscientious efforts on our parts. However, it is difficult to enjoy many food products or even to dine out because of lack of a strong support from the government.
Since the government has placed a strong emphasis on eating awareness and developing habits to ensure health, please support our need for proper food labeling which contains wheat and glutin content warnings. Looking forward to your support, Carmela Recktenwald
