In another topic someone mentioned that Metamucil is not safe to take. Is this correct?

If they make these in the same plant that they make the other products I wouldn't touch as IMHO the CC risk would be high. If you need more fiber can you slowly add more fruits and veggies to your diet instead of going with a fiber supplement?

Metamucil is safe and gluten free. I called them a while back. But you can call again to ease your mind.
