Yesterday, I went into Tate's and asked them about their facility and manufacturing process. ALL bakery goods are produced in the same small kitchen, on the same equipment, baked on the same cookie sheets etc. SO many opportunities for cross-contamination. I asked if they tested their product to ensure that gluten-free bakery goods are indeed gluten-free, and the answer was no. AND, the label on the gf products does not disclose that products are made in a shared facility.
I think it is irresponsible for "Gluten-Free Living" magazine to feature and promote a company that is not certified gluten-free. It is equally mis-leading and irresponsible for a company to label its' products as gluten-free when they cannot guarantee its' gluten free status.
