has anyone had a bad reaction to the regular Ruffles potato chips?

I just had some and now i feel oh so so so bad!

help!

No, Ruffles are safe. I've heard they're even made in a dedicated facility, yet I've never confirmed it myself. Maybe the grease was causing a problem? Or maybe it was something else.

Actually, I called recently and checked--the Ruffles (both the Regular and the Natural) are not made on dedicated lines. Only the Staxx are made on dedicated gluten-free lines.

I had begun to have problems with them, and wondered about that myself. I really miss them--they're so good :(

Like Carla said--it could be the grease, or it could be CC.

I haven't tried ruffles but I reacted to Lay's baked chips and I know at least someone else here did as well. I only eat the Stax and they have been fine.

Lays products have always been a mainstay for me - as long as an item was on their gluten-free list, I ate it. Sometimes when traveling that would be the only thing I could find at a convenience store, airport, etc.

But then I recently checked their website and saw the disclaimer that although they have many products that are naturally gluten-free, they cannot guarantee since the only dedicated gluten-free line is the Stax. However, they do state that they make every effort to clean machines in between, etc.

I am trying to avoid - but not eliminate - all of their products except Stax. I do not want to completely give up Tostitos or Ruffles. Until I am told that they have MAJOR cross-contamination issues, I will keep on eating them on occasion.

I only eat the Natural Ruffles ... since I've gotten used to the flavor of the ones made in the better oil, I just don't like the others anymore. I've never had a problem with them.

Stax are contaminated with dairy, not gluten.
