After writing my post on Gluten-Free Rice Krispies, I received a couple of questions about the cereal, so I sent an email off to find out the answers. I am going to share them below.
The first question was whether or not the new Gluten-Free Rice Krispies would be available in Canada. This was the answer I received:
Regarding your question about the product being available in Canada, at the present time this a U.S-only launch.
The next question was: Do you know if they are testing it for gluten or just that they are not actively putting gluten in it? What about cross-contamination? This is the answer I received:
And as for testing it for gluten, to ensure the gluten-free status, the product is made in a separate production facility that has been making gluten-free items for nearly a decade. Every batch of product is tested for gluten, as is the production line.
I hope this helps to clear up any confusion with the soon-to-be released product.
While I have your attention, I would like to remind you that May 4th is quickly approaching. Remember, that is the day that The Gluten-Free Food Labeling Summit takes place in Washington, DC. There was even a write up in the Washington Post today about it! Big time! If you haven’t taken the time to sign the petition yet, please do so. It won’t hurt, I promise.
