The episode that caused anger from parents is titled "Quitting Cold Koala." In the storyline the high-maintenance Stuart can only eat gluten-free foods, as a result of his annoying attitude he gets pancakes thrown at him.
Concerned parents who watched the episode with their children who happens to have gluten-free diets, felt that the episode promoted intolerance of food allergies. Often kids with food limitation diets are isolated from other kids and parents felt that this episode promotes further isolation.
A petition circulated on Change.org and the results convinced Disney Channel to cut the episode from airing again.
Disney Channel responded on Facebook:
"To our viewers, we received your feedback about [the] 'Jessie' episode which some of you accessed early on Video-on-Demand. We are removing this particular episode from our regular programming schedule and will re-evaluate its references to gluten restrictions in the character's diet.
