GFCO is committed to ensuring consumers receive accurate information concerning GFCO-certified products.
GFCO advises gluten-free consumers to exercise caution and contact GFCO before consuming or using any product with packaging that displays a questionable mark, or one that differs from the ones shown here (different font, proportions, portions removed, etc.).
This webpage is intended to keep consumers aware of important safety alerts regarding GFCO-certified products and products that are incorrectly bearing the GFCO logo. GFCO reserves the right to withdraw the certification of any company whose certified products appear on this page more than once.
The information on this page is current to the best of GFCO’s knowledge, but may not be an up-to-date list of all incidents that may occur in the marketplace. Again, if you have questions or concerns about a specific product, you should contact GFCO directly.

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.

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.
