In 2007, the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) tasked the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to finalize standards for gluten-free labeling. Four years later, the FDA has failed to fulfill that mandate. To the millions of Americans who eat gluten-free food, this inaction is a big deal.

Did you know that May is now National Celiac Awareness Month? Tomorrow, May 4, leading members of the gluten-free community are hosting the first Gluten Free Food Labeling Summit in Washington, D.C. As part of that event, they’ll be building the world’s largest gluten-free cake. Cool!
