Wow! Page out of the Indian scammer playbook.

At the risk of sounding naive, I am genuinely shocked, no irony, that Office Depot would do that

Restaurants lie.

"Even tiny amounts of gluten in foods are troublesome for people with celiac disease, and restaurants may be the hardest places to avoid the protein, finds a new study. More than half of gluten-free pizza and pasta dishes in restaurants tested positive for the presence of gluten; about one-third of supposedly gluten-free foods had detectable gluten. Gluten-free pasta samples were positive in 51 percent of tests; gluten-free pizza contained gluten for 53 percent."

Study measures gluten in gluten-free labeled restaurant food -- ScienceDaily
