Panera Bread Company
I was at a Panera Bread store recently, and asked about their products and explained my son's allergy (PA). The gentleman behind the counter was very helpful and pointed out to me the over the counter menu, which lists all allergens. I went to the website and found a similar listing of what I saw in the store, but the gentleman could not confidentally anwer my question about the products being made on the same line, etc.
This is the ingredent listing from Panera Bread:
And this is the response that I got back from the email agent: Thank you for taking the time to contact Panera Bread. We are happy to know that you enjoy our food, and that the service has been good for you.
Thanks to loyal customers like you, Panera Bread/Saint Louis Bread Co. is enjoying tremendous success. We appreciate your business and your kind words.
Corinne, to help answer your question, we bake all of pur products on a "common line" another words, yes there may be different products mixed up on the same sheet that may contain peanuts. We of course change the tissue and the pan every time before putting new product in the oven.
Thank you again for contacting us, and we hope that you continue to enjoy Panera Bread.
Have a good day!
