So being a new celiac, I wasn't sure where to post this question.  I am still  making a number of mistakes with the hidden gluten in things.  But I printed a list of trader joes gluten free items and just shopped off a that and didn't read lables. I bought 2 items that when I got them home and had eaten some of one saw that it was made on shared equipment.I'm just 4 months into my gluten free-ness but I guess even when it is on a gluten free list I still have to read every label... Wow this is tough.

Many products which are, in fact, gluten-free are made in facilities where gluten is present, sometimes even on shared equipment. Unless you are extremely sensitive, it is usually not a problem. Equipment is cleaned thoroughly between batches.

 

Having said that, there are suggestions here from time to time that TJ isn't as good at preventing cross-contamination as most are. I have no personal experience as TJ does not operate where I live.

My nutritionist who is expert in Celiac recommended that I avoid TJ's products. There have just been too many issues with cc. I only buy olive oil, salt, paper products, and dish soap from them.

There are quite a few threads on here about TJ's.

I buy dairy products, veggies,fruit, etc. there. I do stick to processed products at TJ's that are not made in shared lines when it comes to nut products, dry fruit and desserts. I don't buy their chips, either.

Part of it is the ability to choose (since they disclose factory info quite often). The other part is in the early days of gluten-free I had a major DH reaction to some chocolate covered "gluten-free" nuts from TJ's. while that reaction could or could not have been just from those nuts the thought of a rash like that enables me to keep a wide berth.

I don't have a problem with their gluten-free cookies, btw (other than the fact they make my butt larger) . Others here have.
