Walmart Gv Frozen Veggies May Contain Traces Of Wheat!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

While shopping the other day my grandmother actually read the back of the bag of some Great Value brand frozen veggies. She noticed they now have a wheat allergy warning on them. She passed it on to me as soon as she got home. So be warned, now we have to start watching plain vegetables!

What, exactly, did the warning say? It is a bit much to state "now contain wheat" without knowing. "Processed in a facility which also processes wheat" and "contains wheat" are not the same thing.

No, it doesn't say it CONTAINS wheat. It has the same CYA statement on it that many products have.

I am currently looking at the bag.

Ingredients: corn

Allergy warning: MAY CONTAIN TRACES OF MILK, WHEAT, AND SOY.

Those warnings are frustrating. I had to quit buying their brand of shredded mozzerella because of a nut warning. Nuts...aroung cheese? It was a lesson in having to read every. single. product label.

Hey, guess what, I didn't say it contains wheat, but that it has an allergy warning on it! May contain traces of milk, wheat, and soy. That is an allergy warning, not that it has wheat as an ingredient! Read the original post first. I was passing along information that there is an allergy warning, I will quite often get ill when I have something that has that warning. It was meant to be a courtesy since it was news to me.

Reread the title of your post.

I read your entire post, especially the topic title:

Walmart Gv Frozen Veggies Now Contain Wheat!

In that title you clearly claimed that they "Now Contain Wheat!"

Since you are now retreating from that claim, I will retitle the topic to reflect what you are actually claiming.

Thanks for the heads up. I may not have thought to look at the ingredients of a plain bag of frozen veggies for an allergy statement. Just shows that it is wise to read every label every time--I'm sensitive enough that foods with a "may contain traces of..." affect me every time. :)

Thanks for the heads up! I buy walmart brand stuff often. Probably wouldn't have thought ti look at a bag of just veggies. I too am bothered by stuff with those kind of claims. Have to say I'm disappointed to see we cannot get away from snippy drama in a group like this.

I'm guessing that with plain frozen vegetables there's very little chance of wheat. I'd eat it. Now if you were talking something like cereal, that's another matter.

Here in the midwest, many of Wal-Mart's frozen and canned veggies used to read "gluten-free." Then it changed.

I remember one week buying frozen vegetables that said gluten-free, and then a couple weeks later, noticing the labels had changed and the wheat statement had been added.

Probably in order to keep up with having the lowest prices, they change plants, sometimes frequently. When I shop there, I check every can or bag, and I do it even if I am purchasing multiples from the same spot -- sometimes new gets mixed in with old.

I think it's just a CYA from the supplier, since WalMart makes their suppliers disclose that kind of stuff. It's nice of WalMart, but then gets annoying when suppliers slap on a CYA disclaimer like that. I buy and eat their plain frozen veggies just fine.
