I have heard that Arby's was o.k. but I wanted to check with the store.

Dear Sara

Arby's restaurants utilize CORN OIL for deep frying all of our products.

The only product we sell with tree nuts--not peanuts--is the sticky bun of T.J. Cinnamon's.
This product is oven cooked and never comes near the fryers.
The chance of cross contamination is relatively negligible.

If you have questions, please call the number below.

I miss Arby's too. I'm not allergic, but dd is PA/TNA. When they first started having the nuts in salads and sandwiches I called, and was told that they do NOTHING to avoid cross contamination. So we quit going. I have since read that they have peanut butter shakes at some locations. I'm sure that it won't be long before every restaurant/fast food is off limits-our selection is certainly dwindling.

I too had a reaction at Arby's, and after checking into it, I was told that their bread contains soybean flour. So that might have been the culprit. I started out with adult onset, severe PA, and it has now progress to all legumes and most nuts - this is in addition to all the stuff I was alergic to before becoming PA. Sadly, I don't get to eat out anymore - but I sure do get to save a lot of money ;-)
Nola, PA and so much more...

This pretty much angers me! I myself do not have a peanut allergy but DS does. I have looked at their website and from looking at it it appears that they are allergy aware. I guess that is not the case! Why bother going through the trouble of making a whole page dedicated to allergies and such if you are not going to take precautions in the restaurant! Makes no sense. DS is still too young yet to eat in a restaurant but I guess this will be one that we will skip! Thanks for the heads up!

I too am leary about Arby's. My wrap had sesamee seeds stuck on the outside. It's good thing my allergic daughter didn't order the wrap!!!!

I've never tried Arby's with dd before, but I did have an adult PA friend tell me once she had a reaction from eating there. This was probably about 3 years ago and I'm not sure what she had, but she did say that was the only known allergy that she had. I've never investigated it, just avoided it but maybe something's changed since then...

My daughter is allergic to both milk and peanuts, and we eat at Arby's all the time. She loves their roast beef sandwiches and curly fries. They have a nice reference chart of common allergens in their foods at [url="http://www.arbys.com/nutrition/calculator.php?mid=1&type=allergens"]http://www.arbys.com/nutrition/calculator.php?mid=1&type=allergens[/url]
