I love the King Arthur Gluten-Free Flour line of mixes, precisely because they are made in a facility free from the top eight allergens as identified by the US Food And Drug Administration. So, I was surprised to read from an Allergic Girl Facebook page visitor that King Arthur Gluten-Free Flour labels had changed; produced in a top 8 facility was no long there. Here are the old and new labels side by side.
So what actually changed? Here’s what a King Arthur Gluten-Free Flour company spokesperson stated:
“The facility we manufacture our Certified Gluten Free mixes in does not bring any of the top 8 allergens into its facility. Our mixes are not tested for each specific allergen, only Gluten. As there is always a risk for cross contamination outside the facility, our Food Safety team, out of true transparency and an overabundance of caution, decided to remove the “allergen free” statement.”
Here’s more information about King Arthur Gluten-Free Flour mixes. And here’s how to contact them directly about your personal needs.
Thank you, King Arthur Gluten-Free Flour for creating a delicious and safe product and for clarifying your labeling to reflect your manufacturing and testing capabilities.
