Alert: Good Seasons Italian Dressing Ingredient Change

It has come to my attention via numerous emails and listserv updates that the Good Seasons Italian Dressing packet has had an ingredient change.  The change has made the product unsafe for those on the gluten-free diet – wheat in soy sauce has been added. 

Further information was shared by Phyllis Kessler, President of the So. Florida Celiac Support Group.

I spoke with Kraft yesterday and they explained what happened with their
Good Seasons Italian – dry packet mix. Seems like one of their major
manufacturing facilities had wheat on the production line and it wasn’t cleaned.
That’s why thousands of boxes had to be re packaged and labeled contains
wheat.
The head of dietary services suggested that if calls were received that
they might be able to sway the top-brass to move to a safer facility.
They suggested that we call 1-800-522-0501 and get a case  number and lodge
a complaint.
Many stores still have the old formulation …I went to several and bought
out the stock.
Check your local stores too.
PLEASE take a minute to call and strongly suggest that they change
facilities and go back to keeping this product all natural and preservative
free… as the original box states

Another generous listsev member shared this link to a dressing that can be made from scratch and makes a great alternative. 

This serves as a wonderful reminder to us all that ingredients and circumstances can change frequently requiring vigilance in label reading each and every time you buy a product.
