Vote TODAY for Gluten Free Medicine LabelingMonday, May 07, 2012
Thanks to the lovely GlutenFree Jen, I found out that today is the day to vote for CLEAR gluten-free labeling on medicine. There's a bill that needs our signature to go forward.
You can read a little more about it here on Jen's site.
And you can vote here NOW!
They need bipartisan cosponsers by May 8th to move the bill ahead.
I don't know about you, but I believe this is something that should be clearly labeled for everything, especially medicine. Just two weeks ago I had some pretty bad congestion, went to the store, and then had to call the company for the medicine I was looking at. They were very kind, but could not answer my questions. They took my information, but it was almost a week later before I got a call back (congestion now gone!). Luckily I wasn't THAT sick, but had I been the experience would have been miserable.
I would love a clear label on everything. It would be a wonderful confidence boost and save a lot of time, and living with a snotty nose! :)
*Note: I now know that Target's form of Mucinex is gluten-free (as of May 1, 2012). :)
