Default What is "Gluten-free meat"?

I recently transferred into the deli department in the store I work at and was asked by a guest the other day if our deli trays could be ordered with "gluten-free" meat. This took be aback, since I believed gluten to be associated with grains, not meats. Since I wasn't sure about our meats and was the only one around at the time, I said that I would ask about it.

The only answer I received was to say that for meat to be considered "gluten-free" that it must be processed in a processing plant that does not use any gluten-ladened products or processes.

While this seems to makes sense to me, I am a bit curious if anyone else out there has heard of "gluten-free" meat? If so, what defines the term "gluten-free meat"?

Inquiring minds want to know!
