The following is a direct copy paste from the PDF file of the Chick-Fil-A ingredient list I downloaded directly from their site.

(ps I had to be creative to crack the password protection...)

This is from an info box:

I keep reading that refined peanut oil - "should be" OK. No thanks, I'll eat some where that uses another kind of oil any way.
If I won't allow my child to eat something that "may contain" peanuts - why would I risk peanut oil? It most certainly May Contain some of the peanut protein still lurking in there. Once again - thanks, but no thanks!

I feel the same way, I don't allow my child to even eat "may contains" or "processed..."
so I definitely would not give anything that contained peanut oil. I guess that is my own comfort level, but my DD is only 3 and I guess I want to give her the best possible chance of outgrowing the allergy. Even if she didn't outgrow it, I don't think my comfort level would change on this issue. Does anyone allow things with hot pressed peanut oil?

I think that the answer "A:Not usually" would be enough for any PA allergy parent to say..."well, we are still not going to eat there".
"Not usually" is not "No". And I think that the FDA should have been more direct with their answer. This could be misleading.
