This is seriously a huge win for the gluten-free community. This baker "mislabeled" his products as gluten-free when they weren't really safe for us to eat. Now he is going to jail! This better be a warning for vendors and restaurants alike that false advertising of gluten-free products is really a serious offense and dangerous to those of us that must eat gluten-free due to major medical conditions. Thank you Raleigh court systems, from the gluten-free community!

I'm glad he got a substantial sentence. Something to note, which I haven't seen brought up anywhere, is that he sold a lot of his stuff at festivals and street fairs. Vendors misrepresenting themselves, and their merchandise, is rampant at fairs and festivals, (fake designer bags is just the tip of the iceberg) and they all get away with it. There is no law enforcement monitoring any of these festivals.

That is likely why he thought he could get away with selling fake GF bread as well.
