If this has already been posted please excuse me for posting this. A week and a half ago my husband bought a carton of their broth,(knowing that it was safe) and just right now for no reason in particular I decided to look at the ingredients and was shocked to see wheat on the list. It's very disappointing as I will now have to throw it out.

 

Its puzzling as to why they would change their broth because I recall just last year seeing this broth on their gluten free list. BTW I live in Texas so maybe its a regional "thing"

The organic broth has had wheat in it for years.  Every time I've checked a label it's been there.

I don't think they changed anything.  I learned the hard way.  Read every label, every time.  I think some of the Swanson broth is safe and some is not.

Really?? I could've sworn that I saw it on their gluten free list recently. I've read through that label many times and have never seen that. Unless I'm confusing it with something else.

Swanson's 99% fat free is gluten free.  They tend to look alike, so it would be easy to get them mixed up.  And, yes, as others have noted, the "organic" has always contained gluten.

I think their overlapping labels is what is confusing to me and their gluten free product list simply states chicken broth or stock.

I agree, it is not clear.  Campell's is not one of the best to serve their gluten free customers - at least in the US.  In Canada, Campbells offers more options.

Sometimes the Great White North is a better place. Campbells in Canada have an ongoing effort to reduce sodium content and eliminate gluten where possible. In the US, not so much.
