Gluten-free website to review cookie policy

A specialist online supplier of foods aimed at those with gluten allergies and intolerances has been criticised today for forcing visitors to its website to accept non gluten-free cookies to continue browsing.

Website founder Ben Anderson, who is considering suing the company employed to construct his website, has called for better labelling of of cookies by website developers from the outset and is concerned with how Britain’s exit from the EU could affect his customers.

“Who knows what will happen once this country no longer has to conform the EU food labelling rules?  Everyone is aware of computer viruses but it’s not obvious when accepting cookies that you could be allowing allergens to infect your device.”

Disgruntled coeliacs and IBS sufferers took to Twitter to express anger over what many see as a potentially lethal error.  The hashtags #Crumbs! and #BiscuitWars have been trending this week, although the latter has been mainly taken over by Twitter users misunderstanding the issue and pitting the likes the Garibaldi against the Custard Cream.
