I am beginning to become a bit hot under the collar.
There seems to be an epidemic of Happy Assassins.
In late March, came one Mr. Damian Cardone. (Damian, who'd have thunk it?) who bragged, publicly about making people ill. Who claimed that gluten free was just a trend, only a rare few, when called on it, were even given credit for really needing the gluten free diet. His Facebook is in the ether, but screenshots remain. Like this one. I have a large copy I keep around. (It reads: "Gluten free is b******t." Celiac disease is where people are physically intolerant to gluten. Cardone goes on to say even when customers ask for gluten free products, "I serve 'em our pasta...with high gluten flour... chefs love to use people as experimental research." Then, in North Carolina, the owner of a bread company blithely lied to customers "Sure, completely safe- gluten free, clean site, honest". (Sir, no where in Southern Hospitality does it make it OK to get people ill.) As one unhappy consumer put it: "I ate a bagel and was on the bathroom floor all night." 2 weeks. 2 "chefs/bakers". See Paul Seelig/ Great Specialty Bread Co. Sick people. And people who are sick in the goddamn head and should have known better. How is any celiac/ gluten/wheat/allergic/sensitive person to feel safe/ reassured? And will I get my appetite back? These questions may be answered on next weeks's episode of SOAP.
