For Christmas I am making home made taco seasoning in a jar to give out so I need a lot of spices, and at Sams Club they have Tones and Spice Island spices, I wasn't satisfied with what was on the label so I wrote them.  Thought I would share, since most of the info about them on here is 8+ years old.  Basically, their straight spices are okay, if the blends/seasonings have wheat in them, they will state it.  Super sensitives may want to avoid it due to their shared equipment, although I have seen a lot of anecdotal evidence of people using it and they are fine.   It tickles me that they reference back to celiac.org :)


"Thanks for contacting ACH Food, Inc.
All spices and herbs are inherently gluten free. Most of the spices we sell are “single spices”, in other words, one spice or herb in one container. These spices may not contain an ingredient list on the label because they are simply 100% spice. Items that are blends of spices (such as Italian seasoning or poultry seasoning), may have an ingredient list that simply states “spices”. This tells you the ingredients are all spices or herbs – nothing else. So, again, these are gluten free.
Some blends do contain gluten, either in the form of flour or from flavorings derived from wheat, rye or barley. These will be noted on the label as containing gluten. Note: some older containers of seasonings may not have this stated. 
Because we produce both gluten free and non gluten free seasonings, we are extremely careful about clean out procedures that take place between running these different products. Our clean out procedures are strictly enforced to minimize any contamination between products packed on the same line. We do not currently certify our seasonings as gluten free by an outside agency. 
If in doubt on the gluten status of any of our products, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Since my celiac friend uses Tone's single spices and herbs in her home and her gluten-free restaurant, I can attest (anecdotally) that they are safe.
