Gluten-Free Labeling

Make Your Voice Heard!

Last year, FDA officials made a commitment to the celiac community that the gluten-free labeling rule would be completed by September 30.

That date has come and gone.

It’s time for higher officials to know the celiac community needs gluten-free labeling standards now! The health of millions of Americans is at risk because we don’t have access to basic information about product ingredients.

The White House has provided us the opportunity to express our concerns through an open petition. Make sure your voice is heard. Sign the petition on the White House We the People webpage. It’s quick and easy to do.

According to the White House, if enough people sign the petition, it will be reviewed and administration officials will respond to the signers of the petition. In other words, we’ll have their attention. Anyone age 13 and over can sign the petition. (In order to sign, users must create an account at WhiteHouse.gov and verify their email address. This doesn’t take long. It’s quick and easy—really!)

We need at least 25,000 signatures by November 2nd. So please don’t dawdle! Get your family, friends, neighbors, teachers--anyone you can--to a computer to sign the petition.

Visit the WhiteHouse.gov "We the People" website to sign the petition. Please sign the petition today!

As a Canadian I feel almost guilty that our government has been able to get us our labelling (as of Aug 2012), but our friends to the south are still walking blindly. Even though I cannot sign the petition (since I am not an American citizen or resident) - I will certainly be praying for a quick and positive outcome! I believe that ransparency in labelling is the right of every consumer!
