Maybe the stores in your area don't disclose anything because there isn't anything to disclose in the first place.

Update on Edible Films Adapted from Food Technology, Vol 51, No 2, Feb 97, pp 60, 62-63
Scientific Status Summary by John M. Druchta and Catherine DeMulder Johnston / University of California-Davis

"The materials that have received the greatest attention for edible films use are cellulose ethers, starch, hydroxypropylated starch, corn zein, wheat gluten, soy protein and milk proteins. Food processors considering use of protein-based films must be aware that some consumers have a wheat gluten intolerance (Celiac Disease), milk protein allergies, or lactose intolerance. Use of such films as coatings on foods must be declared appropriately to the consumer, no matter how small the amount used."
From what I read, the gluten coatings are mainly being used for baked goods that are presumably wheat anyway.
Diagnosed with wheat hates me 4/13
