New Food Safety Regulations

1 Comment 29 July 2010

As you probably know, the government requires that manufacturers list wheat on the ingredients label of any appropriate product. There is no requirement to list barley, rye, or un-certified oats.

The Celiac Sprue Association is encouraging legislation that could (if amended) correct that situation. The House of Representatives has passed their version of “The Food Safety Modernization Act” and the Senate now has the opportunity to pass this this legislation adding one phrase that would make this law helpful to persons who live gluten free.

Certainly, we all agree that celiac disease is a “food safety issue”.  We must alert the Senators to the importance of this fact. The Celiac Sprue Association has detailed information on this subject and provides a sample letter that could be used.
