Emergency Recall: Organic Aussie Bites

Season 1, Ep. 1196

Emergency product warning for Best Express Foods Organic Aussie Bites.

From Gluten Free Watchdog:

Last week Gluten Free Watchdog tested Aussie Bites. They tested well above 20 parts per million of gluten. The best by date for the product tested by Gluten Free Watchdog is 6/16/24. We alerted both GFCO (the certifying organization) and the manufacturer. Today, GFCO issued a safety alert for this product (08/01/24 BEF2 113 04 24). Please note that the two best by dates are different. It is the recommendation of Gluten Free Watchdog that you not eat this product. Gluten Free Watchdog has moved the report for this product to the public side of the website.

Please see the left hand side of the page at Please reach out to GFCO with any questions about their safety alert.
