Does anyone know if Butterball turkey bacon is safe? Thanks. I have e-mailed butterball in the past about their hotdogs and recieved no response.

Hi Carrie--Last fall I contacted Butterball about their turkeys. I was told that Con Agra foods will clearly list wheat or gluten ingredients. I just went and looked that up--I had made a note in my CSA notebook. So much info. that sometimes I forget who said what!

I found calling them to be much more effective. They've got people available most of the time (I called at like 8pm one evening...) and they were able to find out directly. Their number is on their items (or it was on the ground turkey I called on and they said it was ok).

So Butterball will state gluten in their ingredient lists?

Butterball is a division of Con Agra foods. I was told that Con Agra had the policy where they would not hide any gluten ingred. To me, that sounds like it would apply to Butterball, and any other brand name under them. If you are uncomfortable, it might be best to talk to them--their #--800-228-8372. :)

I know that butterball turkey franks are gluten free. Haven't checked into the rest, but was told that they wouldn't hide any gluten in their labels.

Thanks Shirley :) I'm glad to hear that their franks are gluten free. I've been wanting to try them. I'm using the turkey bacon to make corn chowder tonight for dinner!

Yum Carrie ... I love corn chowder ... haven't made that in a long time. I think we are having Moose burgers tonight. My Dad sent a cooler full of moose home with us :D It's very lean and very tender and very tastey. :P

We use the turkey franks quite often, sometimes boiled like hot dogs, sometimes sliced length wise and fried or broiled and sometimes cut into baked beans on toast .. gluten-free of course.

The corn chowder was a hit at my house :) It turned out very nicely. Moose burgers sound good too :) I've always wanted to try buffalo as well.

I'm so excited to try those butterball franks. I'll be buying some tommorrow.

Bad news for me :(

I've tried the Butterball turkey bacon and the franks and I have reacted to both. The turkey bacon reaction was very subtle and I wasn't even 100% sure that I was reacting to the bacon at the time. However, I tried the franks both last night and tonight and I'm just now breaking out in a rash/hives all over my legs. I am one of those super sensitive people though. I react to very very small amounts of gluten. I would hate to see what would happen to me if I ate a piece of bread! :blink:

Oh no!! Have you tried the Jenni-o extra lean turkey bacon? It is good and both my daughter and I have been fine.

Carrie--Sorry to hear you had a reaction and are not feeling well :( . Do you think it might be the turkey? I have problems with turkey (including Butterball) unless I get a fresh one and roast it myself. Just a thought...I feel bad because I told you that they will label any gluten--I hope they were being truthful.

Oh it's not your fault at all. They probably are gluten free and just got contaminated from something in the factory. I am ultra sensitive to gluten. I've had gluten reactions to products that have gluten free right on the label! I didn't even get that sick from the turkey just a rash, hives, and some fatigue. Hopefully, that's all the symptoms that I will get.

No, I haven't tried that turkey bacon. I'm not even sure if they sell it here. Do you know if they sell their products in Canada?
