This just in from Frances Kelley, Austin Chair, GIG of Central and South Texas, via the Celiac Listserv:
Many of the members of GIG of Central and South Texas have talked about the Jenny’s Bakehouse products. Some of you have mentioned how much you enjoyed them. Others have talked about getting sick after consuming the product. Because of the number of people who claimed to have gotten ill after eating the products we sent samples of the Kaiser Buns and Dinner Rolls to GIG’s national office for testing.
GIG tested the products in house and sent the products to an outside lab for further testing. Both products tested positive for gluten using r-5 and G12 Elisa testing methods in the test performed by GIG and the test performed by the lab. The lab test showed that both products tested as having gluten in excess of 10,000 ppm (parts per million). Keep in mind that the FDA proposed definition for labeling a product gluten free is that the product tests to less than 20 ppm.
Based on this information, GIG of Central and South Texas strongly recommends that you do NOT consume these products.
