Good Seasons Italian Dressing Mix Has Gluten Now
0

10 posts in this topic

Sorry if this has already been posted, but I'm absolutely stunned. I saw a message on another board today claiming that Good Seasons Italian Dressing dry mix, which I've used since I was a kid and love, now has wheat. I went by the store and sure enough, Kraft has added soy sauce with wheat to the mix. The box of packets I bought a couple of months ago does not have soy sauce.

Anybody who uses this product needs to be aware of the change. I also intend to contact Kraft.

Not that I don't already, but this is an excellent reminder of my life motto. Every label, every time. I even read my Classico pasta sauce labels even though I *know* they're safe, just in case. This reminds us that just in case may happen one day. This is also very disappointing. My initial reaction is what the hell?! Oh hey, lets take a perfectly good product and add WHEAT TO IT! <_<

Here's another email I've received. It doesn't make complete sense to me, but...

"I spoke with Kraft yesterday and they explained what happened with their

Good Seasons Italian - dry packet mix. Seems like one of their major

manufacturing facilities had wheat on the production line and it wasn't cleaned.

That's why thousands of boxes had to be re packaged and labeled contains

wheat.

The head of dietary services suggested that if calls were received that

they might be able to sway the top-brass to move to a safer facility.

They suggested that we call 1-800-522-0501 and get a case number and lodge

a complaint.

Many stores still have the old formulation ...I went to several and bought

out the stock.

Check your local stores too."

The pessimist in me says they'll introduce a gluten-free version, label it as such and charge 65% more for it.

I get so irritated when I see coupons for Bisquick limitted to the traditional or low fat version. Why don't they just come out and say "Applies to all varieties except gluten-free". I rarely buy Bisquick, but think I'm going to stop altogether due to their coupon policy.

marilyn, I have used the bisquick coupon for the gluten-free version with no problems... I can't say I like the new gluten-free version but I did buy three gluten-free boxes with a coupon....I doubt I will buy again...

Betterbatter.org has a clone that works for me!!!

I have heard GREAT things about Betterbatter, but it's not available retail in my area. Must check online.

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.  
    • gluten-free...how long til I feel better?
      Hi there.  I had been sick for over a year and decided to try and go off gluten within 4 weeks i started to feel better than i had for so long! But my problem is now i test negative for celiac because i have no gluten in my body. I have been told to go back on gluten so it can be determined if i have it or not but im not willing to go back to feeling that sick again!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
