Sick From Trader Joe's Semisweet Chocolate Chips :-(

03 September 2012 - 10:04 AM

I just wanted to post a heads-up about Trader Joe's semisweet chocolate chips. Trader Joe's lists them as "no gluten ingredients used", but I recently got sick after eating them. I was having a chocolate craving, so I ate some chocolate chips straight out of the bag and was very sick within minutes :-(

Does anybody have any ideas about this? Do you think the vanilla is not gluten free? Should I avoid all foods that contain vanilla? Or maybe it was cross-contamination in the factory? From what I understand about their factory, it only processes other chocolate chips, which are also listed as "no gluten ingredients used", so I thought it ought to be safe. Also, do you know any chocolate chips that are safe?

I'm new to this super-sensitive side of Celiac's, so I'd appreciate any advice from those of you who have been dealing with this for longer. The rest of my family members with Celiac's got less sensitive after they stopped eating gluten for a couple of years, but I just keep getting worse!
