As of August 2017 Tylenol has dropped its gluten-free label.  Their website has posted a disclaimer stating that while they do not use gluten in their formulation, due to the global supply chain they cannot guarantee that their products are gluten-free. Motrin, Advil and other OTC pain relievers have similar wording on their websites. Very disheartening.

The Celiac community needs to renew its support of a bill in Congress to pressure companies to actually test their products instead of murky labeling that only satisfies the companies' liability attorneys.

I guess we, as a family, won't be using OTC pain relievers anymore. Simply not worth the risk. Thanks for sharing.

The parent company is Johnson and Johnson (think baby shampoo or Pledge furniture polish).  You would think they would be more supportive.  I am personally boycotting them.   They were CRIMINALLY fined for having metal particles in their infant Tylenol (liquid).
