We have an unopened bag.. I'm returning it and we are calling that 'satisfaction' guaranteed number. I'll let you know what they say :)


I called up Frito Lay and spoke with their nutrionist which was very helpful. I was told that my call was the first REPORT they had of an allergic/celiac reaction to their product - and that they take it VERY seriously (which is good to hear!). Unfortunately she couldn't assure me they would change anything apparent to me but they look into their manufacturing and cleaning process. She said they do this - process multiple allergens on the same equipment and clean thoroughly between runs - all the time with many allergens and almost never get reports of allergic reactions - and of course they are sending me coupons to reimburse me the cost of the items I purchase (as LAy's STacks since I can't guarantee anything else is gluten-free now :( ). She did mention that if anyone else has severe reactions (like myself and my two boys reacted) they can call and it will go into their internal reports and they can better research where along their processing lines the contamination could have occurred (if not at the source!!). I mentioned that most people will just stop buying their product which is sad - correct allergen information would mean we might have some faith in their product again! Feel free to comment on what I was told - however they were VERY responsive.

Oh hoooray I found your orig. message about the Tostito's...I just responded to your Follow-Up but hadn't seen this message yet. Thank you So Much for sharing this info and for calling Frito-Lay.
Are they ever going to have GOOD clear Labeling? This is crazy stuff...now I'll have to make Notes to take with me to the grocery store to check for Coded Messages imbedded into the packaging.
That's really crazy isn't it? Why don't they just say, This Product could be made on machinery that has gluten or whatever? To me that would be simpler.
Oh well...thanks again so much.

I am eating some right now. With a hint of lime. And I'm not sick so that's probably a good sign.

Guess what? My son had a rash on buttocks (dh?) and an ADHD massive outburst, pee'd through his bed and had a nosebleed for four days straight. My third oldest same thing - rash on buttocks. We checked the codes.. had a 71 in the date code... man am I pissed!!! Those are the two (along with dad aka me) who ate those! (I had D... and some skin outbreaks - including a painful bump on my knee dh? !). We aren't going to buy anymore products from Frito Lay then!! We have an unopened bag.. I'm returning it and we are calling that 'satisfaction' guaranteed number. I'll let you know what they say :)

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THIS INFORMATION!! Makes me think we were going crazy and missed something because I keep my children very strictly gluten-free!


I am with you. I don't need Frito Lay. If i am going to have to look at the codes on their bag to determine where they were made. Let alone memorize the numbers. Forget it. It is to much work. I already read every label and had to learn all of those idiosyncrasies.
There are other brands out there that don't make me work that much!

They have a website that lists everything and a cautionary statement at the bottom.

I called Frito-Lay today and got the "scoop" on Tostitos (sorry - bad joke). They now also process flour chips with the other products. The way to know if your bag has been processed in the same plant (and potentially on the same lines) is the product code. This code is found directly under the price stamp.

***If the 2nd and 3rd numbers in the series of numbers is either 71 or 45 they have been made in the plant with flour.

This took some investigating - the info came straight from the nutritionist.

Hope this helps! Now I know why one bag made react, while another didn't. Mystery solved!

Folks, this original information is more than 2 years old now. Who knows whether it still applies.

Richard, I clicked the link above - they are always updated to the day when you click a link - I don't have the regards at this time about the numbers to look for - but the disclaimer was there.....I haven't felt like this in a long time since I'm so careful and only gradually add a new sauce or candy....but it's very random that I do so.
I did in fact feel the squeezing and twisting in my neck last nite - I have used the last of my leftover chili to make the dip. The only new thing was the tostitos.
Thankfully I am not that sensitive to CC and only feel the slightness in the neck when it happens (like with Maxwell House coffee)
Nevertheless....I got glutened by them - purchased in GR Mich at a spartan store.
So, old or not - it definitely still pertains.

Thanks for being cautious for us tho :D

This is so frustrating, I have been eating frito lays... I am going to stop. I truly wish there was a clear cut statement on food. Why should I have to call and email and find product numbers. I know I am among the super sensitive of us but geesh. This is so hard and I am getting really down about it. I know its better to eat whole foods..but those of us who don't.. just make it clear.

Fully acknowledging there are individuals who have a myriad of health ailments, intolerances, extreme insensitivities, etc., which is very unfortunate, I would still like to balance this post with the info that there are Celiacs that have no problems with Frito Lay products that do not contain wheat. That is, those where there are no wheat ingredients listed on the label.

I just don't want all newly diagnosed Celiacs to be unnecessarily alarmed. Properly informed, yes. In my opinion, the chance of cross contamination in any food product is small, and in any case, if it exists, is variable. It is not a constant. Not all food items made in a facility that also makes wheat containing products can be contaminated. Nor, if any are, to the same degree.

best regards, lm

Gee isn't that nice of them :angry: How about putting a 'made in a facility that processes wheat on the label', oh wait that would cut their sales and then they couldn't put out a list 4 pages long of cross contamininated items that newbies think are safe. I will never buy their products even if they do start to label truthfully I would not trust them and their gluten-free lists of items that are not really gluten-free keep a lot of sick.


Not only should they put 'made in a facility that processes wheat' on the label, they should remove the information on their website that says they are glutten free.
