I keep reading conflicting advice saying it's safe then I read it's not safe because of contamination I believe that I am severe case of celiacs disease and haven't had jello but was just about to make it when I thought better check again here's one

Sugar-free Jell-O is made up primarily of gelatin. The manufacturer adds in food coloring for visual appeal, as well as several flavoring agents. Regular Jell-O has sugar as a sweetener, which gets swapped out with an artificial sweetener -- usually aspartame -- in the sugar-free varieties. None of these ingredients directly contains gluten. But Jell-O's manufacturer, Kraft, doesn't certify that Jell-O products are gluten-free. The company claims that some of its coloring and flavoring ingredients come from suppliers that don't always label every possible gluten contaminant. So while the final Jell-O product is probably gluten-free, it isn't guarantee

Cross-Contamination in the Plant

Facilities that process these coloring and flavoring ingredients manufacture many types of products. It's likely that at some time during production, the plant processes something that has wheat, rye, barley or other gluten-filled grain. Traces of gluten can be left behind on equipment, can go airborne when a wind picks up or can get transferred to another location when a worker touches several products. These scenarios cause cross-contamination, where foods that would normally be gluten-free, including Jell-O's coloring and flavoring ingredients, become contaminated with gluten.

Effects in Your Gut

Because sugar-free Jell-O doesn't have any clear grain ingredients, it might have no effect in your gut. If you're very sensitive to gluten, however, avoid all Jell-O products, including the sugar-free varieties. Otherwise, if you eat the gelatin dessert, you could have painful cramps, gas and bloating in your abdomen associated with gluten intolerance. You might even experience diarrhea just by ingesting the minimal amount of gluten.

 

So is this right does any one know I believe that I am really sensitive celiacs disease like tiny crumb will get me sick thanks for your time

You can use Knoxx Gelatin and Juice or flavor extracts. I do it with extracts and knoxx or use simply delish sugar-free sometimes, it contains a seaweed-derived thickener that bothers some people though.
I have read many celiacs eat jello fine, but there was an issue last year with them changing the ingredients on one of their puddings to contain gluten.

It is gluten free.  I just had some at Easter.  Kraft does not label anything gluten free for legal purposes. 

Will you get sick?  You might react to other ingredients due to food intolerances other than gluten.  If you are worried, sick the jello until you feel better.  Sometimes piece of mind is priceless!
