I do not know anything about Long John Silvers, but as for Arby's, I have not asked them yet, but we just no longer visit there. Last time we were there, my son,who is allergic, broke out on his face, as he does when he is exposed to the smallest amount of peanut. Quote:Originally posted by dhumphries:

I've eaten at both places my whole life and never experienced any problems. As always, it's better to check your local stores out for yourself since regions/owners might do things differently.

My PA son eats at Arby's regularly. Several years ago, while traveling and on our first visit there, I spoke with the manager. He had, on hand, and rather extensive ingredient listing of all of Arby's products. At that time I found no peanut products. My son has a roast beef sandwhich and fries from there weekly with no problems. That doesn't guarantee that they don't use peanut products, I know, but this is our experience.

Hi. I eat at Arby's occasionally, and don't seem to have problems. However, the last couple of times I've eaten at Long John Silver's, I had some digestive problems--I am not sure whether it's an allergic issue or not, but I don't eat there anymore. IT's the same as the french fries at McD's--stomachache and some wheezing!

I know this won't pertain to most of you, but my daughter can't eat the roast beef at Arby's anymore because it contains soy protien. A lot of deli meats do these days, which is frustrating when you are allergic to it.
