Good Seasons Italian Dressing Mix Has Gluten Now

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has already been posted, but I'm absolutely stunned. I saw a message on another board today claiming that Good Seasons Italian Dressing dry mix, which I've used since I was a kid and love, now has wheat. I went by the store and sure enough, Kraft has added soy sauce with wheat to the mix. The box of packets I bought a couple of months ago does not have soy sauce.

Anybody who uses this product needs to be aware of the change. I also intend to contact Kraft.

Not that I don't already, but this is an excellent reminder of my life motto. Every label, every time. I even read my Classico pasta sauce labels even though I *know* they're safe, just in case. This reminds us that just in case may happen one day. This is also very disappointing. My initial reaction is what the hell?! Oh hey, lets take a perfectly good product and add WHEAT TO IT! <_<

Here's another email I've received. It doesn't make complete sense to me, but...

"I spoke with Kraft yesterday and they explained what happened with their

Good Seasons Italian - dry packet mix. Seems like one of their major

manufacturing facilities had wheat on the production line and it wasn't cleaned.

That's why thousands of boxes had to be re packaged and labeled contains

wheat.

The head of dietary services suggested that if calls were received that

they might be able to sway the top-brass to move to a safer facility.

They suggested that we call 1-800-522-0501 and get a case number and lodge

a complaint.

Many stores still have the old formulation ...I went to several and bought

out the stock.

Check your local stores too."

The pessimist in me says they'll introduce a gluten-free version, label it as such and charge 65% more for it.

I get so irritated when I see coupons for Bisquick limitted to the traditional or low fat version. Why don't they just come out and say "Applies to all varieties except gluten-free". I rarely buy Bisquick, but think I'm going to stop altogether due to their coupon policy.

marilyn, I have used the bisquick coupon for the gluten-free version with no problems... I can't say I like the new gluten-free version but I did buy three gluten-free boxes with a coupon....I doubt I will buy again...

Betterbatter.org has a clone that works for me!!!

I have heard GREAT things about Betterbatter, but it's not available retail in my area. Must check online.

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.  
    • Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten.  Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc.  Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon.  Consider reading through the Newbie 101 thread under the “Coping section”.    You should see some minor improvement soon.  It does take time to heal.  Most  around here will say it takes a year!  
    •   When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no problems. Well, I'm 10 weeks into my gluten-free diet and still feeling crappy as ever.  I have not been eating out unless the restaurant is 100% gluten-free (I'm lucky there are several near me).  I am very careful that everything I use to cook my food is thoroughly cleaned at home, but is this really enough?  Did you guys need to replace most kitchenware in order really avoid being cross contaminated?   I'm curious to get some opinions before I spend a bunch of money on new/separate stuff.  Thanks!  
    • They have all given you good advice. Like Ennis_Tx said this is not medical advice. Just some observations. Ennis_Tx mentioned already a good B-complex. But people who have Perncious Anemia low B-12 have "Pens and Needles' feeling in their extremities. Mine was much more pronounced when sleeping. . . while sleeping my nerve ending would go to sleep. This would wake me from my sleep.  I would shake them awake/loose much like a leg that had fallen asleep while awake.  We have all felt that feeling before except the whole side of body's nerve ending would tingle/fall asleep enough to wake me from my sleep. Once taking a homocysteine tablet (B6,b12 and folic acid) tablet call FABB for the abbreviated ingredients under doctor's supervision this "pens and needles' went away. This also happened in my finger and toe tips while awake as if I had pinched a nerve in my back. These sensations are now in remission. Also if you think it is Rynaud's then try Niacin or Niacinamide.  It is a natural vasodialotor and the 'warm sensation" people take when using Niacin especially in a work out supplement is Niacin they add to enhance athletic performance for body builders.. . . because this opens capillaries approx. 10 % more allowing more air into the muscles thus improving their work out. This flushing goes away after a couple days of using Niacin.  The Niacinamide form does not flush the way the Niacin form does but provides the same benefit. Both Niacinamide and Magnesium each lower blood pressure approx. 10% each this way.  But if BP is a real problem for you  take the Homocysteine tablet mentioned above or just Folic Acid by itself. My BP is now normal after taking Folic Acid because it controls' how/what triggers constriction in our blood vessels thus effectively controlling BP. These are some times that I have used to improve my circulation. *** again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me with similar issues.  I hope this is helpful. 2 Tim 2:7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
