Gluten free? Not really

(article, Culinate staff)

The latest truth-in-labeling scandal: "Gluten-free" products that aren't really free of gluten. In November, the Chicago Tribune tested three popular kids' products made by Wellshire Kids, and found them to have much higher levels of gluten than the semi-official industry standard max of 20 parts per million. Now Whole Foods is pulling the products — chicken nuggets and corn dogs — from its shelves. Still, plenty of folks complained before Whole Foods made its move, and at least one kid had an allergic reaction to the snacks.
