Fyi, my wife was contaminated last night after eating Progresso cream of mushroom soup. It's labled gluten free, but there are progresso's that are NOT gluten free so they may be processed in the same place. Mind you, she's super sensitive. Just wanted to get the warning out there

Their gluten free soups are usually loaded with soy. Could your wife have an issue with soy? Early on I thought I was being CC'd by many gluten-free products when the real problem was that I didn't know I also had issues with soy.

I remember seeing something that the gluten-free soups were made at one factory and the others at another factory. Which is why a few soups that seem gluten-free are not labelled gluten-free. I have been looking and can't find it. I'll try to email them and see what they say.

Many people on here use thier gluten-free labelled soups sucessfully. I rarely use canned soups as they have too much sodium, but I have used a few Progresso ones.



Just emailed them. I'll post the answer I get here.

you know you could be right. She's never had a problem with Soy in the past, but as I learn about Soy and how it's manufactured(a lot of it from this board) we've tried to make it something to stay away from. Thanks for the tip!

response from Progresso. Sounds like it may be separate maunfacturing facilities. Why they dont want to say that, I don't know.

Thank you for contacting us about gluten in Progresso soup.

General Mills offers several products that are labeled gluten-free. Please check the package label for the gluten-free statement on the front/side/back of the package. Only products that can be verified to be gluten free will be declared as gluten free on the label. It is important to check the product label each time you purchase a product because it has the most accurate information about the product in the package.

Because we constantly strive to improve our products′ quality and nutritional value, the most up-to-date product information is on the package the product is purchased in. For that reason, we do not distribute product information lists as they could quickly become outdated. It is important to check the package label before purchasing for the gluten-free statement on the front/side/back of the package to verify that the package you choose is gluten free.

For products not labeled gluten free, we will always declare gluten containing ingredients if they are added to the product. If the ingredient declaration lists wheat, oats, barley, rye, or derivatives of these grains, then the product contains gluten. Examples of derivative ingredients include: malt, barley malt, organic malt, semolina, Durham, triticale, and spelt. We do not include gluten containing ingredients in the ′Natural Flavors′ or ′Spices′ on the product ingredient list. If there are gluten ingredients in our products, those ingredients are always clearly listed.

If there are no gluten- containing ingredients listed in the product ingredient label, but the product does not make a gluten free claim, it is because we cannot fully assure that this product is gluten free. While we have not added gluten-containing ingredients, factors such as sourcing, conditions of manufacture, etc. do not allow us to provide the full level of assurance that a gluten free claim requires.


Additional information regarding gluten may be obtained by contacting your health care professional or one of these organizations.

I am soup lover, so does this letter from General Mills are stating that they cannot claiming that the gluten free soups are made on gluten free dedciated lines? it seem like they are just stating that it does not contain any gluten ingredients in the soup at all. But at same time, it is at your risk of try this products but they are not liabity for anything happens. It is pretty much at our risk of try this products without gettting General Mills in trouble. it is pretty much similar to Chex cereals that are supposely gluten free too From what I have been reading other threads for awhile, i noticed some celiacs are not able to tolerate chex cereals that are labeled gluten free too.

I find this since that is pretty hot topic about the products that the companies are trying to be more prompt to labeling allergns on their foods to make easier for those people that dont know how to read labels very carefully or those are try out the new fad diet which is Gluten free etc.


is it a false adversiting? or is it just encourage celiacs to buy their products because they labeled it gluten free?

i find that is very twisting in the way...

Alright, the deal with Chex is that there are many out there with gluten issues that do just fine with it. However, those who do not probably have an issue with soy (which apperently some of the vitamins in it are sourced from) or to BHT (a chemical used to keep freshness). Both of these can cause gluten-like reactions.

At any rate, i can no longer do progresso soup. I used to like the mushroom the first can or two, them my stomach decided no more and gave me belly aches after it. Gluten? I don't think so. Richness? Big possibility there. I can no longer handle rich foods and whatnot.

To me this says they only label as gluten-free the ones they are very certain are gluten-free, including Chex and BC mixes, etc.

This is what I got from it as well. Instead of leaving us to label reading, they are making it idiot proof for us. For those less sensitive to CC or willing to risk questionably sourced ingredients, they can of course feel free to eat the ones without obvious gluten containing ingredients but that are not marked gluten free.

In the past I have eating both the marked and unmarked cans of soup. I did not get sick. Since that time, I have become not only more anal retentive about what I buy, but have developed a medical condition which prevents me from eating (so far as I have found yet) any canned soup. I'm not sure if I would go back to buying the unmarked cans, but for each of us it has to be a personal choice. Just because something doesn't have the words gluten free stamped on the front, does not automatically mean it contains gluten. Just because one person eats one of these things and gets sick, does not mean it did contain gluten.

So true.
