Our advice to consumers

If you have bought the above products and have coeliac disease and/or an allergy or intolerance to wheat or gluten, do not eat them. Instead return them to the store from where they were bought for a full refund.

Eating gluten by accident

If you have coeliac disease and eat gluten by mistake, you would usually start to have symptoms a few hours after eating it and the symptoms can last from a few hours to several days. The effects vary from person to person and depend on how much gluten you’ve eaten, how sensitive you are and how long you have been on a gluten free diet.

If you make the occasional mistake and eat gluten by accident, it’s unlikely to cause lasting gut damage. It's a learning process and we can support you and help you because we understand what you are going through. Our helpline is staffed with dietitians and food experts who are here to help you with advice and support. Call us on 0333 332 2033.

What to do if you have symptoms

If you have diarrhoea or you are vomiting, it’s important to keep yourself well hydrated by drinking lots of water. Some people find that taking medication to treat constipation, diarrhoea or headaches can ease symptoms, but check with your pharmacist or GP.

The most important thing is to get back onto your gluten free diet to try to prevent further symptoms. If your symptoms are very severe or do not improve, speak to your GP.
