GENERAL
For those of us with Celiac Disease, we need to be able to know whether the foods we are buying are safe to consume. It is imperative that labels be clearly marked "Gluten-Free" to save us -- and those family, friends, and restaurants that feed us-- the undue stress of scouring labels, calling companies and arbitrary guess work. It takes me two hours to go grocery shopping now because I have to so carefully read every label. I love when I find a product that has clearly marked itself "gluten free".
