NC Man Arrested for Selling Bread Falsely Advertised as Gluten-Free
Do you ever worry that you’ll be told something’s gluten-free when it’s really not? For many of us celiacs, this concern is definitely a source of anxiety. Unfortunately, sometimes this mistake happens through contamination, but usually people are not being intentionally deceptive.
A new case recently arose, however, that involves a man that appeared to be intentionally misleading customers about a supposedly ‘gluten-free’ product. Check out this article, sent to me by a former student, about the recent arrest of Paul Seelig of the Raleigh/Durham area. Seelig owns a bread company and faces charges for deceiving his customers. The bread that he advertised as gluten-free actually had high levels of gluten. It doesn’t look like this is just a case of a little bit of contamination. Sorry Mister, that’s not ok.
