Publix Pulls Magazine Over Gluten-free Mix-up

Celiac.com 11/09/2011 - The Publix supermarket company recently pulled its fall issue of Publix GreenWise Market magazine, because it included a recipe that was erroneously labeled as 'gluten-free.'

The recipe for Orange-Honey Sweet Rolls included wheat germ and yeast, some brands of which contain gluten. The recipe appeared on Page 18 of the magazine.

Publix's swift and decisive action to correct the mistake shows a strong level of commitment to gluten-free consumers.

The letter to print subscribers said that "the recipe for Orange-Honey Sweet Rolls, which appears on page 18, calls for the use of gluten-free flour as an ingredient; however, the complete recipe was not intended to be gluten-free. In fact, the recipe includes ingredients which contain gluten, therefore, it is not suitable for those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance."

Publix operates 1,039 stores in the Southeast, including GreenWise Markets in Palm Beach Gardens and Boca Raton, Florida.

5 stars for the article, and for Publix pulling the magazine. They get a D- for apparently assigning the task of creating or finding gluten-free recipes to someone who had zero clue, same with their supervisor.

I find Publix to be a great source of GF items...they put GF labels on the shelf, which makes shopping much quicker. They are truly committed to serving the GF customer.

Naming the ingredients that were not gluten-free in a recipe that used gluten free flour would have been helpful -- sometimes subtle errors are the most threatening.
