GFCO has become aware that two packages from separate lots of Nature’s Earthly Choice Lentil Trio were found to contain multiple grains other than lentils. The lots in question have Best By dates of 09-29-2020 and 10-01-2020. GFCO is currently working to determine the gluten content of these non-lentil grains. At this point we cannot definitively say that the products exceed the GFCO 10 ppm threshold, but we would recommend that consumers use caution. If you have purchased this product, look through the package contents carefully to ensure that they contain only lentils before consuming, and report any concerns to GFCO using our contact page. We will post updates to this alert as they are available.
