UPDATE (JULY 6): We have been corresponding with the manufacturer via email. According to the manufacturer, the information on their website has been changed and now includes the wording, "made with gluten-free ingredients" and the disclaimer, "made in a facility that also processes gluten." It is unclear whether they have removed or are planning to remove the "gluten-free" claim from product currently available for sale on their website or from other online sellers, including Amazon (additional update: according to the manufacturer, the gluten-free claim will NOT be removed from product currently in Amazon warehouses). Note: Product pictures on the manufacturer website are not completely representative of the product tested by Gluten Free Watchdog. It is the recommendation of Gluten Free Watchdog that you avoid all products made by Pure Goodness at this time.
