The most recent post on Kirkland canned chicken breast is from 2010.

So. Is this still safe and gluten free? Or, what is the best way to contact CostCo for information? Last time I tried that it was a very frustrating experience. :(

Something 'got' me this morning, probably something I ate yesterday. (Usually I react about 18 hours after contact.) The canned chicken is the only thing I can think of from yesterday's food list, unless the culprit is from Wednesday. I can't think back that far, as this has not been a good week for me, physically or energetically. LOTS of brain fog and fatigue since last weekend.

I hope the Kirkland canned chicken is ok. It's a good 'go to' when I need some instant protein and nothing else is easily available.

Self diagnosed gluten intolerant, gluten free since 12/09.
Diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 years ago. Fibro symptoms have improved but not gone away with gluten free living.
Osteoarthritis, mostly in hands and neck and lumbar spine. Not sure if going gluten-free has helped that problem, but it certainly can't hurt. (Am very grateful that so far no sign of the RA that is devastating my mother lately.)
Considering a dairy free trial. Considering.

Hey Beth! I have never tried the Kirkland brand chicken breast, but I found their canned tuna and salmon to be safe and I am sensitive to gluten under 5ppm. Could you be sensitive to soy or anything else that many celiacs react to?

Trust your body! Maybe try eating everything else again to make sure you haven't developed some sort of other intolerance, and if they're ok, I'd say the chicken may be no good... Let me know what you find out! I'd be interested in that product if you find it's safe. Feel better! :)

I've eaten it with no problem. If I remember correctly it's got some corn maltodextrin or starch but not gluten or any sort of wheat warning but it's been awhile since I looked at the label.

This jumped out at me, so I am wondering if something "got you last weekend" and this is residual? Just suggesting! My glutening "effects" lasts about 2 weeks and I can never determine what it was that got me in the first place. Makes me nuts.

I don't think I have any other sensitivities, but have wondered lately if I might. I think I've been a bit hypersensitive since I returned from visiting family during the first week of April. I was careful, and the family generally tries to be sure I eat safely, but out of my own kitchen for a week is tricky, and it was an emotionally trying week, in addition. I haven't felt great since I got home, so it's entirely possible that something else entirely 'got' me. I've eaten the canned chicken breast before without problems, so this surprised me.

I'm wondering if I may have a cow dairy sensitivity. My sister is allergic to cow dairy, and lactose intolerance is common in the family. I've been decreasing dairy and switching to goat dairy products. Somehow stopping cow dairy is quite daunting for me. Worse than going gluten free was!

I'll try to contact CostCo, although that will have to wait until I have time to tackle that project.

Thank you all for your replies!
