Trading Standards have alerted Coeliac UK to the fact that a book called ‘Healthy Eating Gluten Free’ actually contains recipes with gluten-containing ingredients, such as couscous, without alerting the reader to the fact that these items are NOT gluten free.

This could easily be confusing, especially for people newly diagnosed. If it is true, then perhaps this book should be withdrawn …

The news item is on the Coeliac UK site. The author of the book is Paul Morgan, and it is published by Silverdale books.

For those not based in the UK, Trading Standards is the UK Government department in charge of consumer protection. Trading Standards maintain a list of products recalled by the manufacturer for a variety of reasons, including mislabelling.
