Post Foods, LLC has declared that its reformulated Fruity and Cocoa Pebbles cereals are “certified” gluten-free. However, Post has not secured any independent certification for such claims. Because the FDA has not yet acted under the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004, consumers are left to wonder in cases like this, whether corporate claims of “Gluten-Free” mean that such products are safe for their families.
