Kroger Golden Corn Nuggets

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I knew that Kellogg's Corn Pops contained gluten, but have consistently read the packaging on Kroger brand Golden Corn Nuggets -- and nowhere was it listed that it contained wheat. My latest package, however, says at the bottom, in dark letters, CONTAINS: WHEAT. I am wondering how LONG it has contained wheat and if, in fact, Kelloggs produces them and forgot to inform Kroger. I am in the healthcare field, and therefore despise the prospect of litigation (there are so many frivolous lawsuits) HOWEVER: gluten destroys my brain, my retinas and my peripheral nerves. It also wreaks hell on patients with celiac enteropathy. If we have been glutened because of incomplete / improper food labeling, I am all for a class-action lawsuit. I know that sounds extreme, but I am FURIOUS. I just ingested about 1/3 of a new box within the last two weeks, and can't understand why I'm falling so much more and my vision has gotten worse. Now I know why . . . .

Does anyone know anything about this? Lynne

They added wheat a couple months ago. If you looked though the old posts here you can find the date prbly 6 months ago when I told everyone that kroger planed to add wheat, the later some one posted when the ifrst boxes started showing up with wheat. Sorry I dont recall a more exactl time then that. :(

yeah it's been a few months... my daughter LOVES those, and I bought up the last 6 boxes of the old formula that my Kroger had... I absolutely HATE it when food manufacturers do this.

This is why even on supposed "safe" products, we have to read the labels EVERY time. Sucks doesn't it? :angry:

Our Kroger has had the old stuff for a LONG time! Sorry I missed your post, Vincent -- REALLY sorry. I guess I have to go back to eating the expensive honey coated Puffins cereal. How are we going to get these companies to understand the necessity for gluten-free products -- besides the ones that are outrageously expensive? Something has to be done.

I eat the environkids panda bars -- the peanut butter ones are really good! The problem is, I don't want to eat just one! :P

Thanks for all your help and input. I'm calmed down now -- do I need to go in my shell like Karen did? Will do if I have to! :ph34r: You guys are great . . . Lynne

P.S. Nini -- if you haven't checked out Vincent's website, you should treat yourself. The family stuff is fun and cute, and the astronomy stuff is out of this world (I swear I didn't mean to say that).
