I phoned the company (President's Choice) and asked about the ketchup. The representative checked and said it doesn't contain gluten but it's made in a production line that makes other products that contain gluten.
Could this affect the ketchup? I'm trying to wrap my head around this. Does anyone know how production lines work?

Shared lines food is tricky. The equipment is washed thoroughly between runs but the washing is sometimes less than perfect. I think there is always a small risk of gluten in a product produced on the same equipment as gluten foods, maybe even in one bottle and not another.
Unfortunately folks with neuro symptoms on the board say they are very sensitive to traces of gluten. You'll have to watch your reactions and if you consistently get glutened by shared lines food you may have to avoid it.

Neuro folks say they are more sensitive? Oooh, I'm going to have to really stick to the unprocessed foods then.
Thanks again. You totally helped.
