Good news from generic OTC drug manufacturer Perrigo, who makes store brands for retailers including Walmart, Walgreens, and Kroger. In January 2010, they plan to implement a gluten-free assurance program in line with the FDA's requirements for the food industry (less than 20 parts per million), in conjunction with labeling on all of their products.

This will cover popular medications including allergy, cold and sinus meds, pain relievers, and antacids, as well as their extensive line of dietary supplements.

Consider showing your support for this move by choosing Perrigo's products (which are often considerably cheaper than name brands, I might add) whenever possible. Perhaps more large companies will follow suit!

Wow, that's great! So many medications show the "active" ingredients but not all of the ingredients.

Yep. :thumbsup

This seems to be the way that things are trending, but it's sooo slooo-ooow.
