People who avoid gluten soon will have a federal standard behind gluten-free food labels. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Friday published a new regulation - eagerly awaited by those suffering from celiac disease - that defines the term “gluten-free.” Packages that carry that term can have no more than 20 parts per million of gluten. Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition that can be managed only by avoiding gluten. Even a bite of bread with gluten can make someone with celiac disease sick for a couple of weeks.

After months of public input and consultation with experts, the state's pharmacy board appeared to be poised to adopt strict new requirements for prescription drug labels last month. But that changed when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger placed a drugstore industry executive on the board a day before the vote. CVS/Pharmacy official Deborah Veale provided the vote that killed a plan to require large type on drug labels and instructions and to make oral translation of them available for all non-English speakers.

McClelland said he was drawn to the sunny images of bountiful fruit and picturesque landscapes that many citrus companies used to advertise their products during the first half of the century. "There's something American about them," said McClelland, a Santa Ana author who has collected more than 8,500 different labels from around the country.

Her lawsuit accusing the industry of racketeering and fraud is pending.
