Issue Areas/Comments
It is imperative that food manufacturers strictly label goods. Myself and at least 3 of my family members have been diagnosed with gluten intolerance. This is a devastating disease and without labeling, a sufferer from this ailment can not acurately control their diet. The labeling should extend to menu items found in restaurants also. The mass number of people afflicted with gluten intolerance will continue to grow, tools must be made available to assist these people and the many who will be diagnosed in the future.
