Breaking bad bread: Why Paul Seelig's 11-year sentence fits his crime | Feed With Care | Indy Week

But Paul Evan Seelig was found guilty last month of 23 counts of obtaining property by false pretenses and received that 11-year sentence. At his trial, customers of his Great Specialty Products testified that they got sick after eating food that Seelig told them was gluten-free. The North Carolina Agriculture Department soon received an unprecedented number of reports of people falling ill from the breads. More than 20 people were sickened, and a mother who consumed the bread delivered her baby nearly 10 weeks prematurely.


A worker testified she repackaged wheat breads Seelig bought from a Costco and a New Jersey bakery to sell as "gluten-free" at the state fair and for home delivery.

I think 11 years for intentionally lying to people and giving (what to them is) poison is fair. I have lost count of the number of times I have been assured that something is gluten-free only to spend the next few days in agony. To do that to people on purpose... *grrr*
