Nature’s Earthly Choice Lentil Trio
GFCO has received testing data for three lots of Nature’s Earthly Choice Lentil Trio (09-28-20, 09-29-20 and 10-01-20). All three packages contain greater than 10 ppm gluten, and two contain gluten at a level higher than the FDA’s 20 ppm regulatory threshold. The products erroneously carry the GFCO logo, but were not actually certified by GFCO. These products are unsafe for gluten-free consumers, and should be destroyed or returned to the place of purchase. GFCO has notified the manufacturer and FDA of these findings.

GFCO has become aware that packages of Toufayan Gluten Free Wraps Original, bearing lot number SL/45 [time code] 329-19 OL 2 and the GFCO logo, have been sold in Quebec with an additional ingredient sticker that lists wheat flour and wheat gluten. The product manufacturer is investigating the source of this mislabeling, and we will update this alert as more information becomes available.

After further review with the manufacturer, GFCO has determined that the two lots of Nature’s Earthly Choice Lentil Trio that are currently under investigation (Best By dates of 09-29-2020 and 10-01-2020) were manufactured after the removal of this product from the company’s GFCO certificate in May 2018. Therefore, these products and any other packages with a Best-By date on or after 11-31-19, were not certified gluten-free by GFCO, and should not have been sold bearing the GFCO logo. In the interest of public safety, GFCO is continuing to work to determine the gluten content of these products. If you have purchased this product, look through the package contents carefully to ensure that they contain only lentils before consuming. We will post updates to this alert as they are available.
