puppyrasier replied to Sarah P's topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Thanks for the tip I just got diagnosed last week and am trying to figure this whole gluten-free and cross contamination thing out.
puppyrasier posted a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsI got the following email today: Thank you for your email concerning our Alexia Julienne Sweet Potato Fries. Thank you for your interest in Alexia Foods. With exception to Alexia Potato Bites, we are pleased to tell you that our potato products do not contain gluten. However, due to an expansion in our production, we now employ a facility where products containing wheat are also produced. While our products are produced on dedicated lines, our packaging will carry the following advisory: Produced in a facility that may manufacture other items containing wheat. Understanding the concerns that many gluten sensitive consumers have with cross-contamination, great precautions are taken to effectively clean the equipment in between production runs in accordance with organic and kosher guidelines. We cannot, however, guarantee that there will not be trace cross-contamination. As products are produced in the new facility the Gluten Free statement on the package will be removed. If you find any packages that have the Gluten Free statement, they were produced at the time the facility was indeed gluten free. I hope that this information is helpful to you in determining whether or not our products are appropriate for your needs. Please feel free to contact us if you have any other questions or comments. Sincerely, Nancy Consumer Affairs Representative Alexia Foods
