BUYER BEWARE ... oh how I wish that this were not the situation that those who are gluten free for medical reasons face more and more. Thanks to +Peter Bronski for capturing it all so well!
Two weeks ago I was browsing the gluten-free news when a headline at Yahoo! Food piqued my interest: "Panera is Testing Gluten-Free Bread Options." I read on with raised eyebrows... About how the c...

Stop Eating "Gluten-Free" Cheerios ... that's the recommendation of Tricia Thompson at Gluten Free Watchdog after today's recall of 1.8 million boxes of Cheerios because of undeclared wheat. Read more here. (Note that the image is my own.)

RECENT COMMENTS FROM THOSE EATING "GLUTEN-FREE" CHEERIOS ...
"My 42 year old daughter is in the emergency room tonight completely dehydrated from being so sick after eating what she thought was gluten free Cheerios! This has got to stop! This is no laughing matter to people that have celiac and eat food labeled gluten free! When is this matter going to be taken care of!"
&
"I've been eating gluten-free cheerios 4 weeks with no problem, then suddenly had a gluten reaction this week after eating them."

To repeat what I've stated before, the issue is that some boxes are gluten free and some boxes are not. If you think that ALL boxes should be safe and want a "gluten free" label to continue to mean gluten free, please sign the petition to the FDA and General Mills via the following link and please report if you've gotten ill via the info below that.

Contact FDA via (800) 332-1088 (option 4) or http://bit.ly/fdamedwatch

Note: The FDA already has these products under review for inaccurate labeling, but the more info the better. This is the first FDA review since the gluten-free labeling law was passed and we want it to be done thoroughly, so they need to hear from all of you and to get all the info on illnesses.

DO NOT EAT GLUTEN-FREE CHEERIOS ... even non-recalled boxes! See the comments in the image below? They're from just a few of the folks who got ill from boxes that are not part of the recall. Here's the why on not eating these Cheerios and why you should care--and, more importantly--take action, even if you NEVER plan to eat "gluten-free" Cheerios.
General Mills "gluten-free" Cheerios are not safe for gluten-free community & most of our gluten-free resources are not putting the needs of gf community first.

CHEERIOS AD TO AIR DURING TONIGHT'S EMMY AWARDS SHOW ~ Sharing this update to the petition to the FDA and General Mills. From Debi Smith of Hunter's Lyonesse, who is the author of this super important petition. Please take a moment to read and act!

"Sep 20, 2015 — Despite the reports those of you called in to Cheerios, they are continuing to air the commercial that gluten-free labeled Cheerios is safe for the gluten-free community.
They will be airing the same commercial tonight during the Emmy Awards knowing this will reach more people. The viewership for the 2014 Emmy Awards was 15.6 MILLION. This put the Emmy's at number one most viewed show that night. If this year's viewership is the same or more, that means that many or more people will see the commercial and if they are unaware of what you are aware of now, people may be going out to buy gf Cheerios thinking it is safe for themselves or for loved ones.

Please spread the word. Share the petition again. And if you feel the way I do, choose something else to watch tonight.

My latest blog post: THE CHEERIOS DECEPTION

My note: Click on the picture below to be taken directly to the petition and click on the + to share this post with others right away!
General Mills's gluten-free labeled Cheerios is making many in the gluten-free community sick due to the company's reliance on mechanically cleaning oats that have been in contact with wheat and barley, as well as using lot means to determine if a lot is above or below 20ppm. The company is responding to sick people in the gluten-free community that their product is below 20ppm. However, the large proportion of the community getting sick points t...
