Please understand the frustration celiac's & others have in labeling. When my son comes home from college to visit I read every label trying to find something in my small town grocery store's shelf that he can eat that won't endanger his health. It is very hard with all the difficult ingredient listings, some that just say spices so I can't take a chance in case there is gluten used for binding. This can be life or death. Please there is no cure Celiac's have to follow this stict Gluten-free diet the rest of their life to stay healthy. Thank you for listening. Sandy Shewmaker
