RE: Food Allergen Labeling & Consumer Protection Act</br>

<br>1. What 'GLUTEN-FREE' on a food label means to me is that I am able to make safe food choices.</br>

<br>2. Even though some foods may seem acceptable, such as rice or corn cereals, these cereals may contain gluten.</br>

<br>3. I sometimes call manufacturers to ask what products they sell that are 'gluten-free.'</br>

<br>4. When I am in doubt- I DO NOT buy it. 'GLUTEN-FREE' influences my decision to purchase all products.</br>

<br>5. 48 years ago my doctor at Mayo clinic told me, 'We are trying to get better food labeling.' </br>

<br>6. Please consider the babies and young children. It is so dificult for them.</br>

<br>Thank you. Anything you can do will be appreciated.</br>
