Chick-Fil-A uses peanut oil
I recently noticed a note on the drive through menu at Chick-Fil-A that said, "We use refined peanut oil for all of our cooking."
I was shocked. We have been eating at Chick-Fil-A for years. I asked the person at the window if this was new or if they have always used peanut oil. He said that they have always used it, but he was a young kid and might not know any better.
The thing is, my daughter is allergic to peanuts but she has eaten chicken nuggets from Chick-Fil-A probably once a week or every other week for years. I don't understand why she does not have a reaction.
