Ghirardelli Chocolate Bars & Squares Not Gluten Free

Ghirardelli Chocolate bars and squares are NOT gluten-free.

From GlutenFree Indy, excerpt from a post on a well known chocolate
bar:

Thank you for your email regarding Ghirardelli Chocolate.  The
60%Bittersweet Chocolate Chips are manufactured on a line free of
gluten.   In June 2008, the Ghirardelli Chocolate Company  introduced
new milk chocolate bar which has a barley gluten as an ingredient.  As
a result,the line which produces our chocolate bars and squares will
no longer be safe for consumers with gluten allergens
. Kind regards,
