This just in…
The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness announced today that due to community response, they are suspending use of the Amber designation to describe a restaurant or food services establishment. (Read the press release here.)
This is excellent news! Many thanks to grass roots organizations like 1in133.org and the Ditch Amber petition, as well as so many in the gluten-free community speaking out against this confusing designation. The NFCA listened, and for that, I am grateful. Gluten-free should mean gluten-free – no confusing designations needed.
Upon reading the news, I may have run around my living room this evening, giving high fives to everyone. Just saying.
