frito lay oven baked bbq recallThis just in from Frito Lay. The company accidentally printed Gluten Free certification logos on a certain number gluten-containing Oven Baked Lay's BBQ crisps.

From the Frito Lay website:

IMPORTANT NOTE

On Monday, June 2, 2014 Frito-Lay initiated the voluntary recall of select 1 1/8 oz. packages of Oven Baked Lay’s BBQ. The product is being recalled because its package face is incorrectly labeled with the Frito-Lay gluten-free (GF) logo, while the ingredient panel and disclosures on the back of the packaging correctly indicate that the product contains wheat and barley. As a result, there could be confusion whether this product is gluten free. This was an isolated incident and we are putting parameters in place to prevent this from occurring again.

The affected product was sold to our foodservice and vending customers, as well as club retailers as one of the products included in the Baked! & Popped Mix 30 ct. Variety Pack Tray and Baked! Mix 30 ct. Variety Pack Cube. We have notified the FDA, as well as all of our relevant customers and partners, and we are working quickly to retrieve the product.

California Pizza Kitchen Pulls Gluten-free Pizza Crusts

gluten free california pizza kitchenEarlier this summer California Pizza Kitchen debuted gluten-free pizza on their menu. I was giddy. I loved CPK pre-gluten-free and couldn’t wait to go back and try their new pizza. Well,we did,and it was great,but our spirits were quickly dampened by the news that there could be major cross contamination issues going on in the kitchen.

I decided to go back and investigate to see what was going on and whether what I had heard about their procedures was indeed true. I was saddened by what I found out. While it had appeared that CPK went to great lengths to add the gluten-free pizza to their menu,they didn’t consider some of the most important issues. Cross contamination is real and can be very serious. Sure,some of those with Celiac Disease don’t react right away (or even at all),but some do and it isn’t pretty. This doesn’t even take into consideration those (more…)

Gluten Free Review: Mix1 Strawberry Banana Protein Shake

Mix1 Strawberry Vanilla Gluten Free

As a runner I have learned the importance of properly fueling my body.

Skimping on calories & nutrients hurts performance and can hurt your body, too. Carbohydrates are important to supply muscles with glycogen for exercise and a snack of protein & carbs is important after running to help refuel & repair muscles. It imperative to begin this process as soon as possible after a run, but absolutely within 30 minutes.

I have been a little lax on refueling recently,but that has to stop. My current,soon-to-be history, routine for my long runs involved meeting up with my MIT group, running, socializing, driving home (with a coffee detour) and then eating breakfast. By the time I was actually sitting down to eat it was easily 1+ hours later. Not good.

Last week I shared my plan of action for better training with you guys. I am taking it seriously and am now going to include these Mix 1 Protein Shakes in the Saturday routine to see how they work for me. (more…)

Better BatterFROM NAOMI of BETTER BATTER:

To My Customers:

Recently we were advised by our contract manufacturer that they had discovered that one of our suppliers was including a dairy ingredient in one of the components (sunflower oil) used in our pancake and cake mixes.

As you can imagine for a dairy intolerant family like mine, this was extremely disturbing.

We value your health and safety highly, and my commitment to never feed anyone something I cannot feed my own child is absolute.

Any amount of cross contamination with dairy - no matter how small - is unacceptable to us and, therefore I am authorizing a nationwide product recall of all mixes of yellow cake, chocolate cake and our biscuit and pancake mix. (more…)
