  1. I break out whenever I accidentally eat gluten; however, I also notice that I have problems with specific laundry detergents. When I change detergents, my breakouts get better. A year ago I changed to the Tide Free, but that now has begun to give me problems as well. Now I am using Ecover liquid...
  2. I think I read about this in the paper. I hope your son is okay. Did Dino Chicken Nuggets and Corndogs remove the gluten free labels?

  6. Sorry, but I have to disagree here. If it is processed on the same equipment with wheat, then it most likely has wheat in it. Have you ever eaten something that did not have gluten in it but was process on equipment with wheat? I have and the results were pretty serious. Cross contamination...
  7. I almost purchased some baked cheetos at Trader Joes today. The front of the package had the mark indicating it was gluten free. The back, however, indicated that the product had been processed on equipment that also processed wheat products. I have sent an e-mail to Trader Joes but have not...
