To our astonishment we recently found out that Chick-Fil-A uses peanut oil in deep frying their breaded chicken and chicken nuggets. Our son who is extremely allergic has eaten the chicken nuggets with no reaction. We verified it tonight when we went to the mall and asked the manager about the use of peanut oil. I am amazed that this has not been tragic. My guess is that the protein that is the allergin is not present in the peanut oil that they use. Does anyone know anything about this?
