If you have pets feed the gluten free pet food. Not everyone does this -- not everyone agrees thai is necessary but if you are like me & love & kiss on your dog (or cat) all the time then it's not a bad idea. We all know cats lick themselves but dogs lick themselves in many places too. I feel much better knowing I don't have to worry about my dog having gluten spit. Yes, I wash my hands before eating or cooking anything but I don't always immediately run & wash my hands after touching my dog. If I did that all I would ever do would be pet the dog & wash my hands. :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

 

Oh, to add to what Colleen said --- you have to buy all new condiments to make sure they aren't contaminated with gluten. And if you have gluten eaters in your household you have to mark those condiments as yours & yours alone so they don't get cross contaminated. 

Well here; you can get a lot of info. out of the Newbie 101 thread.:

You might want to subscribe to the Gluten Free Watchdog. It's $4.99 per month. 

https://www.glutenfreewatchdog.org

 

They test 8 products per month. You get a notification in your inbox each time a product is tested -- they do 2 products at the time. Just this month a Rolled Oats product labeled gluten free tested well above 20 ppm of gluten.

There is another website which is older & more established. it also has more information imo, being that it has reviews by people who have eaten there.

Also if they bring you a burger with a bun on it cut the whole thing in half so they can't just remove the bun & bring back the contaminated burger. Same goes for a steak you order & they bring bread on the plate -- cut the steak in half so they can't just take the bread off the plate & bring back the contaminated plate & hence the same steak. Actually if any of these scenarios happened to me I would walk out of the restaurant rather than try to make them get it right. I would not be able to trust anything they did but in your case things are a little different being a "secret shopper". 

You'll need to carefully & thoroughly wash with soap & water every fresh veggie before you use it. That squash could have been handled by a grocery employee who ate a sandwich & did not wash their hands before putting stock out. Bananas need to be washed before you peel them as there's no real way to peel a banana without touching the skin & then touching the fruit inside. Wash the top of every can with soap before you open it. Stock rooms hold all manner of goods & flour bags could have broken open & flour floats in the air & can land on anything. 

Imagine flour as particles of sand. 3 grains of sand can make us sick.
