The University of Alberta is conducting an online survey investigating vitamin use in children with celiac disease. They are looking for parents of children with celiac disease to respond to the survey. The results of this study will help further an understanding of the factors that impact children with CD taking vitamin supplements and of barriers/motivators for taking the supplements in Canadian children with CD. Follow this link for more information and to take the survey: http://fluidsurveys.com/surveys/celiacvitd/vitamin-use-in-children-with-celiac-disease/

Kinnikinnick has recalled a number of products because of unlabelled milk in the products. There is no gluten in the products.
The recalled products are Kinnikinnick Original Homestyle Waffles; Kinnikinnick Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Homestyle Waffles; Kinnikinnick Kinni-Kwik Bread & Bun Mix; Kinnikinnick Panko Style Bread Crumbs; Kinnikinnick Pancake & Waffle Mix.
It should be noted that this problem was identified by Kinnikinnick’s own internal ingredient testing problem. Kinnikinnick determined that another ingredient contained milk allergens that were not listed by the manufacturer of that ingredient.
This recall may lead to recalls of other products who use the same ingredient in their products. We will send notices of any other high priority recalls.
