Oats do not naturally contain gluten, rather they are often milled in the same factories as glutenous grains:

If you do not have coeliac disease, then it is unlikely that the cross contamination that occurs in the milling process will be enough to cause you a reaction to the gluten itself. However, as raster says, they are not on the diet. However, oat bran is on the diet, and I buy the stuff that is not packaged as gluten free and I am fine with it even though I am sensitive to gluten.
