General Mills is discontinuing their gluten-free hamburger helper products
General Mills has been contacting members of the gluten-free community to let them know that they will no longer be offering the gluten-free versions of their popular hamburger helper products, including Hamburger Helper Cheesy Hashbrown, Asian Helper Chicken Fried Rice and Asian Helper Beef Fried Rice. This change is due to a modification in their manufacturing facilities, where all of the products, gluten-containing or not, will be processed on the same line. As such, General Mills can no longer guarantee the gluten-free status of the products because of the potential for cross contamination.
