Arrowhead Mills - Flours

According to a post on Delphi Forums there is a high risk of corn contamination with Arrowhead Mills Spelt Flour.

Corn Pasta and Popcorn are produced in the same facility.

Another post of correspondence from Arrowhead Mills states that they do not consider corn an allergen and thus do not monitor it. Arrowhead Mills is owned by the Hain Celestial Group, which is known for its uncooperativeness with regards to corn inquiries.

Also the enrichments in their flours do contain either corn or soy, without knowing which. Their enriched products are not recommended.

I have not seen any reports of adverse reactions to their unenriched flours as of yet, so they will be staying on the list with a cross-contamination warning.
