I know that others have written Target about a gluten free list. I just did and this was the response that I got:Subject: Gluten Content Inquiry All headers

Dear Wendy Martin,

Thanks for your inquiry about the gluten content of our Archer Farms products. Helping to ensure the health and safety of guests and their families is our number one priority at Target.

I'm sorry Target doesn't currently offer gluten-free list for our products. However, the eight major allergens are indicated either in a statement directly under the ingredient list or in the body of the ingredient listing. The labels on our products are the first place to look for the most accurate information about the possible use of gluten in a product.

Additionally, we're always here to help. If you're ever wondering about the possibility of cross-contamination or the gluten content of a specific product, we're happy to research the item for you. Just call our grocery specialists at (866) 423-2135. When you call, please be sure you have the packaging. That way, we can quickly get you the information you need.

Great products. Great [uTF-8?]value—that's what shopping at Target is all about. Your comments are a big help to us, and I'll make sure to share them with our grocery team.

We'll keep working to make sure you can always count on the quality you've come to expect from Target.

Sincerely,

Gregg

I'm new to adding a comment or question to this forum but have found it extremely helpful as I continue my research on gluten-free diet. My son and I are 2+ months gluten-free and it's changed our lives!

I'm wondering if anyone has any updates on any Archer Farms foods from SuperTarget. I'm finding I react when I eat anything from Archer Farms, but haven't been able to narrow it strictly to the AF brand or if something else had gluten. It would be nice to know if any of their items were off-limits or okay.

Thanks!

i've called them before about their organic fruit strips and fruit bars.... they are totally gluten free and no gluten is handled on the machinery. they were very helpful and knowledgeable, just be sure you know the UPC # of the product so they can look it up.

Based on their response above, it sounds like they are only declaring wheat on the labels. Barley, rye and oats could easily be hiding in natural flavors, etc. I avoid them because they've never been very helpful when inquiring about the status of a product. I prefer to stick to brands that clearly labels all forms of gluten.

Just wanted to ad a few cents here. I have called many times on the Market Pantry Target brand, and they are not that helpful. You can only call Monday through Friday, between 9 and 6 in whichever time zone their office is located. When I called they told me that due to constant changes in ingredient suppliers I would have to call every time I want to know about a product, as they base the info off the lot and batch number. This went for their foods and medications. They only list the major allergens as required, and due to the constant changes they will not do anything else.
