    The phrase about shared fryers reminded me that I recently saw a sticker at the McDonald’s drive-thru. They now fry their donut sticks in the same fryer they use for french fries. I have NCGS & would occasionally have their fries. Not anymore.

    We corrected this article within 24 hours of it’s publication, and apologized for the incorrect information.

    I know your focus now is to criticize Celiac.com and others in the celiac community who are working hard to help people, which I find really sad. You used to provide decent info, but seem now to only focus on the negative. Good luck with your approach.

    Also, this wasn’t sponsored content and we’ve never received any money from Buffalo Wild Wings this–all of our sponsored content is clearly posted as such.

      Respectfully Scott…

      – You have a large audience and therefore a huge responsibility to the community. This was not simply “incorrect information”. It was dangerous and since theoretically all of your articles are reviewed by “celiac experts”, it’s even more inexcusable. If it wasn’t for the advocates pointing it out, not sure if anything even would have happened on your end.

      – My focus is never to criticize and it’s never to be negative. It’s to protect the celiac community, especially the newly diagnosed. I’ve been consistent since day 1 of my blog. The sad fact is that there is so much BS being spouted by people, websites, corporations and the media that is potentially harmful to the community, that my calling them out is necessary.

      – My approach is just fine, thank you. It’s community first. Always has been…always will be.

      Honestly Scott, if you read the responses on my social media pages, you’d see that I am not alone in my criticism of your company.

      Scott from Celiac.com – Your reply is very frustrating for me to read which is why I’ve just added celiac.com onto my ‘unsafe’ tab of my spreadsheet. I view CD as one of inconvenience. I spend hours each week looking at labels, researching what is safe, and educating supportive and well meaning friends who see bad information. Posting inaccurate information, even if it is just for 24 hours, increases my burden in my effort to keep myself safe. It is not too much to ask for celiac.com to put the same effort into helping keep the community safe. Until celiac.com shows it is committed to increasing the safety for the community, I won’t be wasting my precious time sorting through and rechecking each post.

    Scott from Celiac.com,

    I would just like to say that I have been following Gluten Dude since I found out I have Celiac Disease. He has helped me incredibly in my 2 year journey and the journey my family is traveling with me because of this blessed disease. This is the ONLY place I can find where I can get an answer that does not require me to ask more questions. His blog posts are very clear as are the answers he gives to his many many followers. If he can’t find an answer he says. I have never felt confused or mislead in any way. I don’t know Gluten Dude from Adam or Adam’s house cat but I can say that I would trust his advice and extensive research plus his OWN experiences more than I would anyone’s on the internet. I will be following his blog for as long as he has it.

    In the beginning of my journey as I was searching for help and answers I looked into Celiac.com. After I had to(‘x out’)of all the adds I had to figure out how to navigate the website. (‘x out’ again). I asked several questions, (‘x out’ again), and sent in inquiries. (‘x out’ again) Then I did find an answer I had to filter through( ‘x out’ again) comments that were years old that had outdated information. (‘x out’ again). I did not trust Celiac.com from the time I tried to use it. Frustrating. I haven’t used Celiac.com or recommended using this sideways ‘help’ site since about a day after I got my diagnosis and determined you guys are making money off of peoples disease. Humans. People. Lives. Moms. Dads. Children. How can you do that, lie about it and sleep at night? That is a rhetorical question. I wouldn’t believe you if you answered me so don’t bother.

    Thank you Gluten Dude. You are a blessing.

      Much appreciated Julie. I’m not going anywhere.

      And to clarify, I have no problem with people making money helping other people; as long as they are not 1) doing possible harm to the community and 2) selling out.

    McDonald’s french fries are not gluten free, it has wheat (*natural Beef Flavor Contains Hydrolyzed Wheat And Hydrolyzed Milk As Starting Ingredients). Plus they’ve been frying wheat battered chicken and fish long before donut sticks.
