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.
