Yes, thanks SO much for going directly to the company and speaking out.

How did the Shepard's Pie go?


Courtney - 25

Columbia, SC

Gluten-free since July 8, 2006

Casein-free since October 16, 2006

Went six weeks, and fell back into a deliciously painful world of cheese.

Casein-free (again and for serious this time) December 11, 2006

Stupid cheese addiction....2/07

Dx Hypothyroid in 1993

Dx Gluten & Casein Sensitive through Enterolab 10/06

Dx Adrenal *Exhaustion* 2/07

Originally from WI, I am still in denial over my newfound casein intolerance. I fear I will not be allowed back into the state if I can no longer eat cheese and drink milk. This could pose some trouble over holidays when I wish to visit my family. It also poses a problem involving the severe rage I feel when I have to throw away somebody's unfinished cheese sticks. That is so wrong.

Thanks for going there personally and talking to them about it. I know they always ask for numbers so they can test batches, but I don't ever see them confirm the results with people who know they've been glutened. (I have heard them say "you say you were glutened, but our tests said there was no gluten." then what?!?!)

Hi Rebecca,

I just wanted to add my thanks to you for going to see them personally and taking the time to post all about it.

Sorry you got sick, though. Take care! :)

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday I received an answer from AMY'S KITCHEN. Sorry that it is long. :rolleyes:

Dear Rebecca

Thank you for the time you spent with me discussing the reaction experience after consuming Amys Kitchen

The bottom line was that they had there product tested and they say there was NO DETECTABLE LEVEL OF GLUTEN in the product selected for testing.

While we did not find gluten in the product, will continue to monitor this product and have set up an ALERT PROCESS THROUGH THE CONSUMER SERVICES DATABASE SO THAT THEY CAN RESPOND QUICKLY IF THEY GET A RELATED CALL FROM ANOTHER CONSUMER.

Amys kitchen response

They say Amy's kitchen is dedicated to the manufacture of products that are delicious, nutriousand safe to consume. They go on to say that they hope I will continue to purchase Amy's Kitchen products in the future. They sent me two free coupons for Amy's Products.

They finish by saying that,

As you know Amy's Kitchen is a family business. We truly appreciate hearing from our customers especially when there might be problems. Consumer comments prompt us to check our systems to make sure proceders are being followed and to take corrective action if anything is amiss. Again thanks for your concern and tim.

University of Neb

:( They alo sent me a copy of the report that they received from UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA

Bottom line CHEESE ENCHILADA #LOT Loi156B "BLD" below the limit of detection,

The lower limit of detection for the R-Biopharm RIDASCREEN Fast Gladin is 10 parts per million (ppm) gluten. Amounts below this level cannot be reliably detected in this assay. The R-Biopharm RIDASCREEN FAST Gliadin is equally cross reactive with gliadin/ gluten for wheat, ryem and barley. One ppm is equal to one milligram of gluten per lilogram of sample product

They go on to say IMPORTANT NOTICE:. If the possible source of allgeren contamination in your samples is from fermaentation, or consists of fermented or hydrolyzed materials, current methods cannot measures allergen levels appropriatelyinthese cases. This can result in a severe underestimate of the allergen content of your samples.

In these special cases, a BLD reasing may be indicated but there still could be enough allergenic residues left over to be capable of causing and allergic reaction.

NO responsability at all i would assume, on Amy's Kitchens part. :angry:

What do you think ? :rolleyes:

I am so confused. Some of their stuff says it's made in the same facility as gluten, some says it was made on the same line... And one thing I looked at yesterday says neither - when it lists the potential allergens after the ingredients, it just says "Soy." Does that mean it's safe? Or have you all had problems even with their stuff that doens't say it was made on a shared line?
