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.

Before ordering the endoscopy, you would think they would order the complete celiac panel. Not all celiacs (like me) ever get a positive TTG (I do test positive to the DGP, but negative to the EMA and TTG). You would think that the additional blood tests would be way more cost effective than go...

Hello linzk8! I would suggest you to go with natural foods as you are allergic to latex. One of my friends had the same problem. She also had latex allergic. She used Indian nuts to lose weight purchased from the official site of Nuez Dela India and achieved a success. You can also check the same...

My family visited Peru (my 13 year old has celiac) last Christmas, and we found Peru rather gluten free friendly. Peru is the land of corn and potatoes, and they have lots of grill meats. Their cooking ingredients tend to be naturally gluten-free. We did the 4 day Inca trail hike to Mach...

Most physicians follow the joint commission?s guidelines on prescribing HTN medications which usually begin with a diuretic and calcium channel blocker (the amlodipine) - see below. Is it possible that your bp was still not controlled on the CCB (amlodipine)? So the ARB was added? Again, I?d just...

Plumbago et al, Thanks for letting me know about the "artan" drugs being ARBs. I think Cyclinglady was right the Losartan research is not free and thus not public. I saw the link with no abstract but wanted to read it to confirm as you noted in your ETA that it was another "Artan"...
