meat: "may contain allergens"

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My partner bought beef stew meat from Wholefoods and the package says "may contain allergens due to shared production areas". Can it be gluten? (I wouldn't have thought so, but it seems to be everywhere....) Thanks.

Based on this vague label it could have trace amounts of wheat, which is considered to be one of the top 8 allergens that are referred to whenever they use the word "allergen" on an ingredient label. Obviously its better to look for items that say "gluten-free" on the label, and it is your call whether or not to eat it. May food companies use blanket statements like this to cover their butts, even though they may not even contain 5 of the top 8 allergens at all. This sort of labelling is very frustrating.
