I recently discovered the gluten-free menu at P.F. Chang’s and was elated that I could finally eat gluten-free Chinese. (http://glutenfabulous.org/2015/01/20/p-f-changs-offers-a-gluten-free-menu/)
I just came across this article published in Legal Newsline Legal Journal and was a little shocked. But after giving it some thought, I wondered will this case set precedence when it comes to paying extra for gluten-free products in general? Let’s face it, our grocery bills have gone up significantly since we have switched to a gluten-free lifestyle, which is medically necessary. However, does our condition constitute a disability? And will this lawsuit discourage other restaurants from offering a gluten-free menu? What do you think?
Extra charges on P.F. Chang’s gluten-free dishes violate disability law, class action says
