Thanks for sharing this info!

You are welcome & I want to let you know, I did check them out on cross-contaimination issues. Here is their letter:

Thank you for message regarding our Starfish Gluten Free Battered Fish portions. The question you ask is a very good one and has been a concern of ours as we developed our Gluten Free products. We have been in development of our Gluten Free batter for nearly 3 years. Three years ago we saw a need for a Gluten Free seafood batter that those suffering with Celiac Disease would not need to compromise quality, taste or texture. This turned out to be more challenging than we had first thought, but after 3 years and dozens of formulas we have introduced a batter that many have claimed is better than our wheat based products. I for one agree with that assessment.

But quality, texture and taste would be of no use to those suffering with Celiac Disease if it was not verifiably Gluten Free. This was another challenge for us. As you know, the FDA standard for Gluten Free is 20 PPM (parts per million) of Gluten. Our goal is 10 PPM (which is the Celiac Sprue Association target) or less and we have accomplished this by strict and tough standards created in our US-FDA HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) plan. Our plan tracks the process from the making of the batter until the final packing of the battered fish portions. Our processing areas are thoroughly sanitized before and after each production. First we use litmus test of all machinery to assure there are no traces of Gluten on the machinery. All Gluten Free batter is stored and wrapped in separate location than any other batters or breading.

After each production we do a full lab test of Gluten particles in our final packaged products. No product leaves our cold storage to the stores before we receive a full and final lab analysis. To date all of our tests have passed with flying colors. We have not only met the standard requirements set by FDA but have exceeded them. Each lab test has been returned as

That is awesome that this company "gets it" and is so forthright about its testing procedures! Definitely a company I will support.

Thank you for taking the time to find this information out and share it with the rest of us.

My daughter is 3. We having been batteling her celiacs since she has been born. We did not find out until just after her 1st birthday. It has been a rough struggle with finding foods and making gluten free foods to her liking. I was shopping today and stumbled upon this in the seafood section of my local groceries. It was honestly the best fish we have had. My daughter loved it. I'm so thankful for this. Keep stuff like this coming... yours truly Gabby's Mom.

Just an FYI, the original info is about 5 years old. Products can change in that time but I bet you checked the product to see if it was still gluten-free?

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
