Whole Foods Pulls Some Gluten-Free Products

This article explains that the Chicago Tribune investigation I mentioned in a post earlier today revealed that several Wellshire Kids brand products labeled “gluten-free” were not in fact gluten-free.  The Dinosaur Shapes Chicken Bites, Chicken Corn Dogs and Beef Corn Dogs sold only at Whole Foods  contained between 116 and 2,200 parts per million of gluten.  The widely accepted level for a food to be labeled gluten-free is 20 parts per million.  If you have any of those products on hand, they should not be consumed by anyone on a gluten-free diet.  For more information click on the article link above.

I'm so glad to see this. My husband returned the Wellshire Farms products we had purchased at Whole Foods and they gave us a store credit. Thanks for sharing this. My husband told the meat department about this issue and they had no idea.
