so lean cuisine meals have allergens listed on the box, and there are quite a few that dont have wheat...i just had the portobello mushroom chicken today...sooooo yummy! it had rice pilaf and chocolate cherries for dessert. its really nice to have some instant meals that i dont react to :D

I had written to Stouffers and got such a vague answer as to whether they had anything that was gluten-free or if it was made in a place that does the meals with gluten in it.
What I got out of their email was some do not have wheat or gluten in them but they cannot guarantee them gluten-free. As they are all made in the same facility as the ones with wheat or gluten. It was very badly worded and written.

I just contacted Stouffers about their products. Here's the letter I recieved in response. The date is correct.

March 30, 2006


Dear Ms. Guhl,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us about STOUFFER'S®. We welcome questions and comments from loyal consumers such as yourself and appreciate this opportunity to assist you.

We have read your e-mail, and for several years now we have been following a strict labeling policy with regard to any of the "Big Eight" allergens in our foods and incoming ingredients. We have insisted that our suppliers notify us if gluten is used in any of their ingredients and yet is not declared on their labeling. Thus, we believe we have uncovered any potential uses of gluten-containing ingredients.

Therefore, any Nestlé products will be fully labeled for any presence of gluten or gluten-containing ingredients. We find that this message is much easier than our trying to maintain a positive list of products free of gluten-containing ingredients.

We have begun adding an allergen statement to the ingredients panel to make it easier for those who suffer from food allergies to identify when those ingredients are present in our recipes. We will also report to our marketing department that you would like to see a product list available in the future.

At Nestlé, we are dedicated to you and your family throughout every phase of your lives. Your feedback is valuable to us, as it helps us to improve our products and services.

We appreciate your interest in our products and hope you will visit our website often for the latest information on our products and promotions.

Sincerely,
Christina Miller
Consumer Response Representative

That is a much much better letter than what I got from them and it was written by someone else. So, maybe they canned the other one. I can now go back to eating my lean Cuisines that don't have wheat...yay. I do miss their pizza's but as long as I can have some of the others it will be great. I can suffer without the pizzas
Thanks bunches.

Still be careful Rusla. Perhaps there is a difference between the American and Canadian companies (like McDonalds......)
