Frisch's!  I used to LOVE Frisch's!  And I really loved that sauce.  But...if you look on their website, you'll see a big disclaimer saying they CANNOT guarantee against cross-contamination with gluten.  Nope, I absolutely would not eat anything from that gluten-filled environment.  Sorry...

Sadly, I think your Frisch's days are over--just like mine.  Boo-hoo!

I'm not sure what you are referring to as "Hamburger Sauce," but I don't see something by the name on the list.

So, I would say no, but not for the same reason as manasota.

"We cannot guarantee" is legal boiler plate which you should expect to see frequently, and which should not alarm you. I expect to see it and pay little or no attention to it. It really does not mean anything nutritionally. What it means, legally, is that "We carefully order gluten-free ingredients from suppliers we trust, be we do not test the supplies that they deliver to us, and therefore will not accept legal responsibility if one of them sends us product that, without their or our knowledge, contains accidental gluten content."

That said,  if you feel that the conditions at your local outlet are unsafe, don't eat there. But remember that just about every restaurant on earth has at least some gluten-containing items in the shop--they are all "shared facilities." And, in all likelihood, if they offer table service, the dishes, cutlery and dishwasher are "shared equipment." I got over it a long time ago. YMMV.

psawyer, I agree with your statement that "We cannot guarantee" is  a legal disclaimer that carries little meaning  for us.  I also pay little or no attention to it.

As usual, my post was not stated clearly.  :-(

I spent years eating at Frisch's in NW Ohio.  There is gluten everywhere; and more importantly to me, their employees appear to be poorly trained (and paid) and with VERY frequent turnover.   I wouldn't trust them to prepare anything gluten free.  But, that, of course, is just me.  If the OP trusts her local employees, have at it.

I should have kept my mouth shut.  If my brain fog ever clears, I'll try again.

I thank you for clarifying with a well-stated comment.
