    OMG I ate some English muffins and thought they were bad. I’m SO sick!!! All the symptoms listed for XANTHAN gum ! I’m in so much pain, early vomiting and stuck in restroom for hours at work. They should be required to WARNING LABEL this stuff!! This is like medicine they’re adding it’s so potent.
