I had a really busy week last week and went for Annie's gluten free burritos, both the cheddar and bean and rice, and the gluten free macaroni and cheese. I checked the label many times because I have mixed them up in the past so I'm sure I bought the gluten free variety, but each day I ate one of these products I became more and more sick. I eliminated any type of cross contamination on my part and am very careful about what I eat. I haven't been that sick since before I was diagnosed when I was eating gluten all day everyday. I saw on a few other websites other people have gotten sick off the Annie's gluten free macaroni and cheese too. Has anyone else had any problems? Maybe I overlooked something, but at this point I'm scared to trust their gluten-free labels.

Some celiacs are able to handle more trace gluten than others.  You may be a more sensitive one.  Do they use shared processing lines or facilities?  You may find that you do better avoiding those.  I hope you feel better soon.

I have had no problems at all with Annie's. I have had problems with other brands in the past, but never with theirs. I do always double check when grabbing a box, they have three types of mac & cheese: Annie's, Annie's Organic, and Annie's Gluten Free. Do not ever mistake the organic for gluten free, which is insanely easy to do as some stores keep them together in the "health food" section and in other stores they'll all be lumped together in (for instance) the mac & cheese section.

 

If you are concerned about CC in the manufacturing process, you can use the contact us part of their webpage to email them or call them to ask about it. It is possible that it is trace CC, or it is possible that it was something else that is making you sick.

 

(I also wonder if you are mixing your brands. While Annie's does make mac & cheese in a box, they do not make frozen burritos. Amy's on the other hand does. Unless it is a different Annie's.)

    • I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but  instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any  pre-made  variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filling meal? There's no reason a chili should include gluten btw, but if they're telling you that there's a high probability of cc its best not to eat there in any case!   Edit: checked their site:  https://www.skylinechili.com/special-dietary-options.php#glutenfree They're basically telling you there could be cc  
    • I live in Cincinnati. One thing we are known for is chili and a horrible football team. I was wondering if anyone had one of those gluten detectors and how they work because I would love to test them. They claim to be gluten-free and even state that in their restaurants there is a high probability for CC. I even wrote the company several times but no reply. I just had some earlier and am up with a reaction to something. I'm leaning towards the chili. Is there any good canned chili out there that will not make me sick?

    • I really miss Pizza. I've tried many different brands but never that good. I stick with the Freshetta gluten-free pizza. It has the CSA symbol on it meaning that it has gone through some of the strictest tests there are and can test down to 5ppm I think. It's about as close to the real deal that I've come across.
    • Found it:   "The Canadian Celiac Association (CCA) recommends that people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity DO NOT consume the gluten-free labeled Cheerios products at this time because of concerns about the potential levels of gluten in boxes of these cereals...Based on the information provided to date, our scientific advisors are not convinced that the testing procedures described by General Mills are sufficient to detect these contamination “hot spots” in the oats and oat flour or in the boxes of cereal that may contain those contaminated oats."
