So Dumb, I Got Careless....

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

A store in town was clearancing out all of their candy, something I rarely buy. But you know, a bargain is a bargain....

Initially I WAS checking the back of each package to see if they were ok...but then I got a bit lazy, saw the GLUTEN FREE on the bag and just tossed them in the cart.

I really wish companies would not label things gluten free when they are processed on equipment with wheat. I didn't see the tiny little disclaimer (my fault...I didn't look...)

This morning, after 4 little caramels at my desk at work I felt that familiar hardness in my stomach...told the boss I had to go home cuz I was going to throw up. I'm sure he thinks I'm crazy.

At least I made it home first. And now I have had the big D for the last 8 hours...

Grrrr....

it happens ,we have all done it at one time or another

Once at work I bought a Twizzlers out of the machine, not even thinking :rolleyes: bite into it and "POW" instant head rush. :blink: I look at the wrapper ,there it was WHEAT FLOUR :ph34r:

Hope it passes quickly for you :)

So sorry you got sick.

That was the second level of learning about "gluten free" for me.

First it was Dove Chocolate Covered Almonds for me...sick, sick, sick. And I thought Dove was gluten free? Well, it is, but only if it's the plain candies...at least at the time I was reading/eating it. (I no longer do, so please read the label if you are going to eat it.) Since then I have found many things labeled gluten free and have the statement Processed in a facility that also processes wheat. Several times they made me sick, so now I know not to eat any of those "gluten free" products. Ugh. I hope this reaction doesn't last very long for you.

Thanks guys! Why on earth must they put wheat in Twizzlers anyway? I really miss those!

I hate when they label things like that. I hope you feel better soon.

I also had a careless moment yesterday. My boss offered to pick up lunch for us and I asked for a grilled chicken sandwich that I know is gluten free if I don't eat the bun. He thought he was getting a grilled one but got a fried one by mistake. I felt bad and didn't want to throw something away that he paid for so I tried to scrape off the breading and eat it. Yeah, that didn't work. Now I am sick for the weekend, if not longer. :(

I feel your pain!!! The EXACT same thing happened to me three weeks ago - I bought gummy bears from Rite Aid which were labeled "gluten free" and I even read on the back of the package that they were made in a facility that produces wheat products. I remember thinking to myself "What are the chances? I cant be THAT sensitive!" So I went ahead and bought them and finished the whole bag, then it was all over...horrible abdominal pains (not to mention that after an hour I looked like I was 8 months pregnant - my coworkers got freaked out) and was in the bathroom for quite some time...NEVER again......I hope you feel better soon!
