Whole Foods "365" Nut Products

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I apologize if this has alredy been discussed. It's been a VERY long time since I've been on the forum and I only have a couple of minutes right now so did not do a search to see if this has been a topic.

To those in the US that have relied on Whole Foods "365" walnuts, almonds, etc. you may have noticed a new packaging. The old packaging made no mention of shared equipment with wheat, in fact it stated that they practiced good manufacturing to segregate, etc. I used some walnuts from the new packaging and got sick, typical gluten symptoms. I questioned Wholefoods Customer Service yesterday in person and they said that these products are now being packaged in a new facility.

I think anyone who has come to rely on these products needs to send an e-mail to Wholefoods and complain about this. Not only do I NOT have a place to buy organic non contaminated nuts now, but I'm concerned about the Whole Food own bakehouse goods! (I assume they use their own products in the breads, etc)

It's super frustrating to get accustomed to a product for YEARS and then have them change it! GRRR.

Just wanted to make everyone aware and try to start a "movement" that maybe will force them to go back to the old ways.

Thanks for the heads up! Do you know if this affects their nut butters as well? I am quite reliant on their natural peanut butter...

I'm not sure about their nut butters. I'd double check the label if I were you, especially if the label has changed recently.
