Progresso must have changed their Cream of Mushroom soup as it used to be gluten-free but isn't on the list. What a shame.

Per a phone conversation to General Mills 12/4/09:

Due to their new gluten-free labeling, they can not label the Creamy Mushroom soup as gluten-free. General Mills has not verified all the ingredients from their suppliers for this particular product. The rep did state that General Mills does not add any gluten to this product.

The phone rep did not know if they planned on verifying the ingredients. She said they have not been given that info.

So - this is a change in labeling only. The ingredients in the product have not changed. If you felt safe using it before, you can make your own choice as to whether or not you still choose to use it.

I was also concerned about Progresso's Chicken & Rice and Chicken & Wild Rice soups since they aren't on the gluten free list and I've been eating them for 2 years.....with no problems, I might add. This is the written response I received from General Mills. It's actually the same answer that Cruelshoes received about the Cream of Mushroom but thought I would put it out there.


Thank you for contacting us about gluten in Progresso soups.

General Mills offers several products that are labeled gluten-free. Please check the package label for the gluten-free statement on the front/side/back of the package. Only products that can be verified to be gluten free will be declared as gluten free on the label. It is important to check the product label each time you purchase a product because it has the most accurate information about the product in the package.

Because we constantly strive to improve our products′ quality and nutritional value, the most up-to-date product information is on the package the product is purchased in. For that reason, we do not distribute product information lists as they could quickly become outdated.

For products not labeled gluten free, we will always declare gluten containing ingredients if they are added to the product. If the ingredient declaration lists wheat, oats, barley, rye, or derivatives of these grains, then the product contains gluten. Examples of derivative ingredients include: malt, barley malt, organic malt, semolina, Durham, triticale, and spelt. We do not include gluten containing ingredients in the ′Natural Flavors′ or ′Spices′ on the product ingredient list. If there are gluten ingredients in our products, those ingredients are always clearly listed.

If there are no gluten- containing ingredients listed in the product ingredient label, but the product does not make a gluten free claim, it is because we cannot fully assure that this product is gluten free. While we have not added gluten-containing ingredients, factors such as sourcing, conditions of manufacture, etc. do not allow us to provide the full level of assurance that a gluten free claim requires.

Additional information regarding gluten may be obtained by contacting your health care professional or:

Or toll free: 877-CSA-4-CSA (877-272-4272)

We hope this information is helpful.

Sincerely,

I just purchased the Creamy Mushroom yesterday and just ate it, and the label still says gluten-free. Maybe they are slowly phasing out the labeling for that? I hope not...

As the definition of gluten-free is debated, many companies are deciding for legal reasons to remove the gluten-free claim from their labels. This does not imply any change in the ingredients or manufacturing processes. It just means that they want to avoid any potential liability in the event that gluten is found in their product as a result of a problem with a supplier beyond their control.

Exactly. So far I can't find another brand that is gluten free. Looks like I am making it from scratch from now on.
