Safeway, Vons, Genuardi, Randalls, Tom Thumb Gluten Free Product List

by John Libonati on July 7th, 2009


The following list of gluten free foods was provided by Safeway July 7, 2009. -John Libonati, Editor.


Please note that these products also apply to Vons, Dominick’s, Randalls, Tom Thumb and Genuardi’s.

We received your request for information on Safeway private label products for those troubled with gluten-induced enteropathy or celiac-sprue. While we are somewhat familiar with the malabsorption syndrome, we do not presume to prescribe any of our products for any specific diet(s). On the other hand, we are happy to provide what information we have which might be useful to you.

For your information, we have over 5,000 different products in our Safeway private label product line and we do not have a listing of ingredients available for the general public on each of these items so we are not able to comply with all requests. We do suggest that you read carefully all ingredient labeling information on products that you purchase.

We can tell you that our frozen vegetables and fruits should be okay since they do not contain any other ingredients but the vegetables or fruits themselves. The exception to this would be our frozen vegetables in sauce.

Another group of items that would be acceptable are non-breaded seafood items, poultry that has not been breaded or stuffed, and our Lucerne/SELECT eggs. In other words, all fresh meats, seafood’s and eggs.

Acceptable dairy items would be all fluid milks, except chocolate milk when starch is added and the source is not listed, cottage cheese and natural cheeses. Most bakery items we believe would not be acceptable for use in this diet.

We have taken the initiative to solicit all of our suppliers for lists of their products that are gluten free. This list is attached for your easy reference.

As near as we can determine, the information we’ve provided is correct; however, we cannot guarantee that changes will not occur from time to time in our ingredient listings, or vendor changes that would affect processing methods or raw ingredients therefore we do recommend that you verify ingredients with us from time to time. We do appreciate your interest in our Safeway Brand products and hope that we have been of some help to you.
