Two Different Answers From Same Company!
Posted 08 March 2004 - 04:35 PM
A month ago I had severe diarrhea after eating two types of Jimmy Dean sausage-the pre-cooked and the uncooked. I called the company and was re-assured the pre-cooked was gluten-free, as well as the uncooked. I asked them to send a lettter stating all of their gluten-free sausage. Well, the letter came, stating, "Our uncooked sausages are gluten-free, however, our pre-cooked sausages are NOT gluten-free." The people on the phone told me one thing, the letter said the total opposite.
Then, I called Kaopectate to check on their gluten-free status. The lady on the phone assured me it was gluten-free. I waited, called back a few days later, and a second person told me she would research that because there was no information available. She called me back to inform me kaopectate is NOT gluten-free!
So...what are we supposed to think, here? I feel like I can't trust ANY of the products now. And companies like Kraft who tell you to just look at their labels because they will put stuff in parenthesis if it comes from wheat just make me nervous. I prefer a product by product answer. Anyone else encounter this kind of inconsistency?

I stick to this theory:
"If I dont know 100% that it wont make me sick, I wont eat it"
I have learned not to trust anyone but other celiacs because you guys and gals understand the importance it is... Good luck!

I was thinking that very same thing. The problem is sometimes we are in such a hurry we just call their 800#, I think I will try to start planning ahead more often and get it in writing.
