Did you check to see what brand of bacon? Here's a link to a thread on gluten-free bacon.

I LOVE Oscar Meyer Center Cut and Boar's Head.

Did they cook anything else in the pan? I'm sorry you got sick :(

Initially it's very hard to get your head around the idea that some things that you "know" don't have gluten, actually DO have gluten; things like bacon, ham, marmalade, stock, spices, it just boggles the mind really to know that you have to look at ALL labels because they sneak it in everywhere. :(

I think it's possible, at least speaking of all my health problems one of my symptoms is bloated face... which have been going down. Morning before I took the ACT over the summer all I could eat for breafast was 3 slices of bacon and a apple. All seem okay for a while, though then my face became really bloated, greasy, and concentration during the test was very difficult. I no longer plan to eat that much bacon before a test ( definately will make sure it's gluten free), nor in the morning. It was really horrible ( I'm sure the apple and bacon also was a good feast for my candida).

Bacon, at least in the U.S., is almost without exception gluten-free. What brand did you use for your family? Of course it if has wheat it HAS to be listed. And I've never heard of barley or rye in bacon.

The bacon almost certainly did not contaminate you.

While in retrospect it is quite obvious that I had GI symptoms of celiac disease for most of my life (I am 56 years old now), it was only after getting a bread machine in 2012 that I started to get the dermatitis herpetiformis.  Up until then, I was eating whole-wheat pasta, and wheat-containing breakfast cereals, but only rarely ever ate bread (I was picky, and only liked artisanal bread).  And then, I was suddenly eating bread four or five days a week!  And not only bread, but whole wheat brea
