Has anyone tried the Amy's brand (supposedly) gluten free products? I tried the refried beans that said gluten free on the can, but yet was produced in a facility that contains wheat. I ingnored it in hopes that I wouldn't react and my stomach swelled really bad. It is frustrating to me that they can put gluten free on a product when infact in may not be.

We eat the Amy's brand soups that say gluten free on the can and have not had any problems. We have also had a few of their frozen entrees with no problems. I have called them in the past and  they say they clean equipment between batches.

I'm actually a gluten free manufacturer and if it's not in a dedicated gluten free facility I would steer clear. Or ask them if they test their batches. I know of some companies who will throw out a whole batch of product if the gluten is too high and then they start all over again.

My daughter can do everything that has gluten free ingrediants but is maid in the "facility that contains wheat"  maybe your sensitivity is higher.  I hear that those who are diagnosed quickly have less of a sensitivity than those tho lived with the symptoms for a while.
