The following product safety alert is from the CBS News on March 23, 2015.

Kansas wheat farmers are funding research to breed a gluten-free wheat variety. "The research, which began in July at the Wheat Innovation Center in Manhattan, Kansas, is still in its early stages, with researchers extracting proteins from seeds of various varieties of wheat. Miller has yet to begin work combining the proteins with antibodies produced by the human immune system to test for reactions."
The project may end up with a less toxic wheat product that isn't completely safe for all celiac disease patients but may be useful for some.
