Default My Bread Came With A Warning Label

My bread wrapper warned that the bread contained wheat.

Imagine -- a loaf of bread that actually contains wheat...........

People with Celiac disease need to know what foods contain wheat. The company who produces your bread may have a policy that they label all foods as such or the state does. Remember that just because one has such a disease that does not automatically presume that they are smart enough to know that wheat bread contains wheat without the warning label. Costly lawsuits have been won on less than that.

Just last night on the news there was a story about how Health Canada is changing the food labeling requirements, particularly for people who suffer from Celiac Disease and from other allergy-related life-threatening ailments.
ALL ingredients must now be on the label, not just "May contain Nuts".

I come from a family of Celiac sufferers and I know the difficulty they always have (had).
Reminds me of a story of my late Uncle, who carried his own snacks everywhere, who stopped in a Tim Horton's for coffee one day, and the girl at the counter asked if he wanted a doughnut with that? To which he replied, "Not unless you have any doughnuts made without flour." The girl turned to her boss and asked, "do we have any doughnuts made without flour?"

p.s. Mean Dean, I agree, it's a sad state when your bread has to come with a warning label!

I understand your points.

But.........

You'd think it'd be obvious that bread contains wheat, negating the need for a warning label.

But in the vane of our fine Franz Bread Company, here in Portland, Oregon, I have a warning label of my own:

WARNING: the air you breathe contains oxygen

I have never understood why some smart attorney hasn't sued ( and won ) over someone getting burned on a hot stove. We all know they get hot when you have a fire going in one-- but---where's the warning labels ??
Why isn't there a warning label on gas tanks stating that you shouldn't strike a match to see if there's anything in it or not ??
Now that gas has become so expensive, gas theft has started to rise. I've heard of people drilling holes in large SUV'S gas tanks to let the gas drain out-- " Hello attorney?? I just got burned really bad in the face--I swear there were no warning labels on the gas tank advising me not to drill a hole in it when I tried to steal the gas."
