Just wanted to mention that a few weeks ago I got glutened due to a 2 lb. bag of "Corn Tortillas" which contained wheat flour. I'd been buying 100% corn tortillas, by various companies, with no problems before. This particular brand, from a local company, was labeled "Corn Tortillas", and I neglected this one time to read the ingredients - lo and behold two weeks after I'd consumed about two thirds of the bag I noticed that it had wheat flour listed after corn. I was affected somewhat by the gluten, but it wasn't bad enough to keep me bedridden or indoors, and I recovered very quickly, with a new reason to be even more vigilant regarding label reading.
