I heard that some turkeys have injected gluten. How do I find a good one to buy?

I have a QFC, PCC, Whole Foods and Fred Meyer to choose from. Ideas?

Assuming you are in the U.S. you don't have to worry. Any turkey, including self-basting ones, MUST by USDA law list any grain. All you have to do is read the ingredients.

I have yet to find a turkey that has gluten, unless it's stuffed.

Honeysuckle White is gluten-free. You can go to their website and it will list the gluten-free status of any of their products.

Yes, Richard is right--any turkey would have to list if there were any grains added.

I get a Butterball fresh turkey. Nothing added, and juicier than frozen. I order one about 2-3 weeks in advance from my grocery store, and pick it up the day before Thanksgiving. Nothing to thaw or store, either :)

I would be careful about the Lipton's dried Onion Soup mix. It has wheat in it. At least that's what the box said last time I checked (a few weeks ago). I had heard that it was gluten free and was excited because I really like to use it in cooking. However, I've checked several times and never found a box that didn't clearly say WHEAT in the ingredient list. So, maybe in other parts of the country you can find it without wheat, but here in the southwest, it is NOT gluten free.

Also, another gluten-free bouillon brand is Massell's.
