GENERAL
Please mandate that gluten free be placed on ALL foods ALL drugs labeled here in the USA, as a mother of a 5y/o daugher with this potentialy life stealing disease, this is so important. Make it so that you don't have to dig for the answers in every label. Let it be put under the allergy part of the product and have it either say Gluten free or has some gluten.
Thank you so much for this very important law. I have been struggeling with this for the past 3yrs with my baby and my hope is other Mothers and Fathers having to deal with a newly diagnosed child with this frustrating disease wont' have the trouble I did, trying to dig the information out of the ingredients lists...
Sincerely
