Last I heard, they were made in the same facility as their gluten containing cereals.  There is a possibility of cc for those of us more sensitive.  Does anyone know? 

 

Does anyone know if they test their ingredients such as the cinnamon prior to processing?

 

This reference: http://celiacdisease...nnamon-chex.htm

says that the final cereals are tested to below 20 ppm and it infers that they are made on shared lines.

From everything I've read, any product from General Mills that states "Gluten Free" is made in a dedicated facility. 

 

"grabbed from the general mills' website" 

 

 

General Mills products labeled as “gluten free” do not contain wheat, rye, barley, oats or crossbred hybrid of these grains. They also do not contain ingredients that are derived from these grains.

Gluten-free labeled products undergo extensive evaluation. Production locations also assure that no cross-contact can occur during manufacturing and/or packaging. Gluten-free products also are routinely analyzed to assure ongoing compliance with the FDA proposed regulation for “gluten free.” All General Mills products labeled as “gluten free” meet or exceed this standard. 

 

This is why Kix are not labled gluten free, though they contain no gluten.

 

PS, my son and husband have eaten cinnamon chex for over a year with no reactions. :)

I called GM today about their "gluten free" chex cereals and they told me that they will send the message along to the appropriate people and she was VERY nice about it! She also informed me that legally companies can have up to 20 parts per million and still be labeled gluten free; however, GM holds themselves to a higher standard and only puts 10 parts per million at the most so if you are VERY allergic to gluten this could be your problem! Hope this helps some of you! I also wanted to let you all know that if you are having problems with ANY gluten free products you should call the company so that they can try to identify and fix the problem :]

Companies don't add gluten to get their products to 20 ppm or 10 ppm. Even if a product tests at less than 10 ppm, it may have no gluten or 2 ppm. It's just how the tests work.
