Wegmans is careful to note that these prepared foods are considered "made with no gluten-containing ingredients" rather than "gluten free." In a comment posted at the Wegmans blog, Valerie Fox, a Wegmans Consumer Affairs media specialist, says that "prepared foods are made in our stores and do not come in sealed packages, so there is the risk of cross-contact. We’ve analyzed the recipes and ingredient lists for our prepared foods carefully, but we’re being honest about a risk of cross-contact in a supermarket setting. We know that some customers are comfortable with that risk in prepared foods and others are not." For example, the shrimp tempura rolls are now made with a deep-fried gluten-free batter but may be prepared in a fryer that also prepares non-gluten-free items. Check with your local Wegmans to inquire about the store's sushi preparation, as it may vary by location.
