GFCO has learned that, prior to August 8, 2019, Farm Girl Club was using GFCO’s certification mark on their Nut Based Keto Bread Roll Mix, which is not certified gluten-free by GFCO. To our knowledge, Farm Girl Club has ceased using the certification mark on this product, however, if you purchased Farm Girl Club products prior to August 8, 2019, the non-GFCO-certified product may incorrectly bear a GFCO certification mark. This product may be safe for consumption by gluten-free consumers, however consumers need to make that decision based on label reading and other means as necessary. You can refer to GIG’s bulletin for tips on reading labels.
