It's all too easy to become complacent about checking things that we have eaten before. I have messed up several times this way but fortunately have realised my mistake quickly and took remedial action to prevent furthering ingestion. I wou,d not recommend it to others but it has worked for me half a dozen times when I had no one to blame for eating gluten but myself. The last time was with Nairns oatcakes. The packaging of the normal wheat free ones is almost identical to the GF ones. I ate several before realising. I couldn't not be sure that they didn't contain enough gluten to make me ill so I dealt with it to be sure. The answer is really strict discipline of checking the packaging, even of previously eaten products.
