Dear {snip}:

We received your request for information on Safeway private label
products for those troubled with gluten-induced enteropathy or celiac-sprue.
While we are somewhat familiar with the malabsorption syndrome, we do
not presume to prescribe any of our products for any specific diet(s).
On the other hand, we are happy to provide what information we have
which might be useful to you.

For your information, we have over 5,000 different products in our
Safeway private label product line and we do not have a listing of
ingredients available for the general public on each of these items, so we are
not able to comply with all requests. We do suggest that you read
carefully all ingredients labeling information on products that you

We can tell you that our frozen vegetables and fruits should be okay
since they do not contain any other ingredients but the vegetables or
fruits themselves. The exception to this would be our frozen vegetables in

Another group of items that would be acceptable are non-breaded seafood
items, poultry that has not been breaded or stuffed, and our
Lucerne/Select eggs. In other words, all fresh meats, seafood’s and eggs.

Acceptable dairy items would be all fluid milks, except chocolate milk
when starch is added and the source is not listed, cottage cheese and
natural cheeses. Most bakery items we believe would not be acceptable
for use in this diet.

We have taken the initiative to solicit all of our suppliers for lists
of their products that are gluten free. This list is attached for your
easy reference.

As near as we can determine, the information we have provided is
correct; however, we cannot guarantee that changes will not occur from time
to time in our ingredient listings, or vendor changes that would affect
processing methods or raw ingredients therefore we do recommend that
you verify ingredients with us from time to time. We do appreciate your
interest in our Safeway Brand products and hope that we have been of
some help to you.

Don't you just love Safeway! I wish that Fred Meyer/Kroger would do the same thing. My only question is that I got my own email list from Safeway a month ago and Cocoa Astro cereal (like Coco Puffs) was on my list, but I have not seen it on other people's lists. Hmm. I bought them for my 3.5 year old son who was so happy to have them, but now he won't touch them. Maybe I should just throw them away.
