Goldfish Puffs: Contaminated?
« on: January 28, 2015, 01:35:49 PM »
Has anyone else tried the Goldfish Puffs by Pepperidge Farms? The package claims to be Gluten Free, & the ingredient list looks safe. But I've finally narrowed it down to the Puffs that are causing my horrible stomach pains. I've read a few posts in other forums where people with wheat allergies are experiencing similar symptoms.  I've contacted Pepperidge Farms to ask if Puffs are made in the same facility or equipment. (But why woild they admit if they were? Lol)
wheat, buckwheat, rye, oats, flax, plum, kiwi, watermelon, honeydew melon, squash, garlic, pinenuts, pistachio
And now severely lactose intolerant

The FDA has a reporting mechanism for contaminated items in order to trigger a recall.  For some this may be life threatening risk if they are contaminated.

I have found that PF labels for shared equipment for the allergens we deal with. However, I do not know about a GF environment.

I wonder if FAARP tests for gluten. You might look it up. If so, you woukd send them what remains of a package that you have eaten and had symptoms afterward. They analyze it for free and give you a report. I believe they contact the manufacturer and the FDA, too, but I'm not sure.
Me: Sesame, shellfish, chamomile, sage
DS: Peanuts

Hello!  I am so sorry for not posting a follow up.  FAARP only tested for pistachio & wheat, but said they found no traces of any.  I still do not know what caused my reactions, but of course I cannot make myself eat the goldfish again.

Not sure which flavor you've eaten, but it looks like all the flavors except BBQ contain milk and I'd suspect that one contains cumin.

DS - peanut, tree nut, milk, eggs, corn, soy, several meds, many environmentals. Finally back on Xolair!

Oh my goodness I didn't even put that together!  I bet it is the lactose intolerance that I was recently diagnosed with!  Geez, still so much to learn...  ~)

I had a celiac reaction to them, but not allergic.  I'm allergic to wheat, but RBO only get me via CD.

So regardless, I'm not touching them again.
