If you’re not aware, the pizza maker, Dominos released what they are claiming as a gluten-free crust about a week ago. Part of the release is an endorsement from the NFCA. It also comes with a huge disclaimer about the potential for cross contamination and states that people who have Celiac or who are eating a gluten free diet should not eat the crust because of that cross contamination. The endorsement by the NFCA is an “Amber” endorsement. Basically, an endorsement that it might be ok for people who are slightly gluten intolerant to try it. And an endorsement of the fact that Dominos tried.
The group behind the 1in133 organization says yes, they tried. They tried to dupe a whole bunch of people who have to eat gluten free into trying to eat a pizza that they claim is gluten free. They tried to dupe a whole bunch of people out of money and make them sick at the same time. 1in133 has started a petition to ask NFCA to stop using the Amber endorsement altogether. In short, they want an endorsement from a gluten free advocate to actually mean that the food is gluten free and isn’t just a good try.
I’m signing it. And you can too.
Sign the petition and tell NFCA to ditch the Amber endorsement.
