FOOD LION, a UK-based online grocery store, has removed gluten-Free products from its store shelves due the concerns raised by consumers, a spokesperson has confirmed to Business Insider.
The spokesperson said the company was taking a “fresh look” at the gluten- Free products it sells, which were originally made with gluten free ingredients.
They include: Fresh fruits and vegetables such as kale, cantaloupe, kiwi, cucumber, watermelon, and papaya.
Fruit and veg, including mangoes, apricots, grapes, bananas, pineapple, strawberries, and watermelon.
Canned meat products, such as sausage, pork, bacon, sausage gravy, pork loin, and lamb chops.
Fresh eggs and milk, including omelets, muffins, and toast.
Some items, such an avocado and a can of tuna, are also gluten free.
“We have reviewed the products we sell, and we will be doing a fresh look at them in the coming weeks to make sure that we are meeting the needs of our customers and do not create any new issues for our customers,” the spokesperson told Business Insider in an email.
A spokesperson for FOOD LANE has confirmed the change to the gluten free items and said it would be removing all gluten free products from store shelves in the near future.
“The products we now carry are not gluten free and have been gluten free since April 2017.
We are not removing any of the gluten content on our products.
All of our products have been tested to make them safe for people with gluten sensitivity.
If you have any questions about our products or are concerned about them, please contact us,” a spokesperson for the company told Business Insider.
