Issue Areas/Comments
I am writing regarding the gluten free labeling. I feel that gluten free labeling should mean totaly gluten free (No Trace Amounts Period!)I have a terrible reaction from just touching it and I swell and bloat if ingested; even if just from cross contaminated. If I ingest gluten for more than one day I begin to vomit to the point of vomiting blood. I believe all labels should read gluten free if they are and I would be more apt to purchase the item as I spend a lot of time in the store trying to figure it out. Like I said I am very allergic and would like any help I could get as far as labels.
