Trader Joe's Bummer

I posted what I thought was the updated list for trader Joe's gluten-free products. well, I went in last night to pick something up and they are still in the process of updating it (I have a feeling because of the new labeling laws).

But the bummer was, I went in to pick up a few of my old favorites that had been on the gluten-free list before and I just read the labels. Many of them now say "Processed in a facility that also processes wheat". I hadn't been in there in a few months but almost everything I picked up (frozen dinners, chocolates, and even some of the chips) now have that warning on them. It's GREAT that they have that warning but I've had really bad luck with those kinds of products before so it looks like I won't be buying much there anymore.

Bummer :(

I agree Berenese...I've been bugging them to get the updated list out too. Didn't know your info--thanks--now ---

Another alert...some of the products they are listing as gluten free on the June 2005 HAVE NOW added wheat. My wonderful Dr Lilian --my chriropractor who keeps me walking...... compared the ingred of a old package in the freezer and her new one and the new improved :blink::(HANDCRAFTED CHICKEN TAQUITOS HAVE WHEAT AND ANOTHER BAD FOR US INGRED...listed right there. Sure it's good it's listed but who wants to start having to read all the labels in their store AGAIN when they are on the gluten-free list on the web page and handouts?

Thanks for the post.
