"The tests identified several potential fillers, including rice, soybean and grasses such as wheat that could pose a health concern for people allergic to those plants and for consumers seeking gluten-free products"

 

Be sure to try elimination herbal products if you are still experiencing symptoms on the gluten-free diet.

 

It looks like this did not include products that were labelled gluten-free.

 

This was a Canadian study.  Do people think that it could be a problem in the US as well?

If it is a pill, I would never, under any circumstances, consider taking it without first contacting the manufacturer to verify that it is gluten free. I have no idea why someone would assume that this rule magically changes for an herbal supplement. It's still a pill.
