I had a really busy week last week and went for Annie's gluten free burritos, both the cheddar and bean and rice, and the gluten free macaroni and cheese. I checked the label many times because I have mixed them up in the past so I'm sure I bought the gluten free variety, but each day I ate one of these products I became more and more sick. I eliminated any type of cross contamination on my part and am very careful about what I eat. I haven't been that sick since before I was diagnosed when I was eating gluten all day everyday. I saw on a few other websites other people have gotten sick off the Annie's gluten free macaroni and cheese too. Has anyone else had any problems? Maybe I overlooked something, but at this point I'm scared to trust their gluten-free labels.

Noooooooooo! I love the mac & cheese!!!!! No problems for me yet. I've never had the burritos.

Some celiacs are able to handle more trace gluten than others. You may be a more sensitive one. Do they use shared processing lines or facilities? You may find that you do better avoiding those. I hope you feel better soon.

I have had no problems at all with Annie's. I have had problems with other brands in the past, but never with theirs. I do always double check when grabbing a box, they have three types of mac & cheese: Annie's, Annie's Organic, and Annie's Gluten Free. Do not ever mistake the organic for gluten free, which is insanely easy to do as some stores keep them together in the "health food" section and in other stores they'll all be lumped together in (for instance) the mac & cheese section.
If you are concerned about CC in the manufacturing process, you can use the contact us part of their webpage to email them or call them to ask about it. It is possible that it is trace CC, or it is possible that it was something else that is making you sick.
(I also wonder if you are mixing your brands. While Annie's does make mac & cheese in a box, they do not make frozen burritos. Amy's on the other hand does. Unless it is a different Annie's.)
