A lot of people use the major fast food companies. I have not been in contact with anyone, and I have not heard that anyone has actually checked with the companies to see if they are actively watching and dealing with peanut allergy. Yes, I have inquired many times at these local restaurants and have heard from many who have also done the same.
Sometimes the local chain seems to be assuring and sometimes you can tell you are not being understood like you should be.

If anyone has contacted the corporate end of these companies please let us know what you found out. When enough of us contact these companies it sometimes alerts them to start dealing with the allergy. If someone can find the persons to contact at these companies please post the information so that we can start to work to make sure they are safe for us. If the contact is different for different countries please post which country the contact information is for.

Stay Safe,

Is this a privately owned BUrger King or one of the franchises? I also went to the website [url="http://www.burgerking.com"]www.burgerking.com[/url]
and found that if you look in the section marked ingredients and then look in the section marked "other" they list the ingredients to partially hydrogenated vegetabel shortening and it does not include peanut oil.
I failed to see any peanut products in any of their ingredients on that web site so I am wondering perhaps if this particular burger king is privately run and therefore not subject to the same quality checks as a franchise?

I had no idea there was a difference. How do you know? Ask the manager?
My son just at at McDonald's for the first time in his 2 year life. My husband spoke to the manager before ordering and confirmed that they were cooking with soybean oil. I figure that's what we're always going to have to do if we want my son to eat there.

Mom2two,
If you look at the ingredients in the sausage patty it states"Prepared in partially hydrogenated vegetable shortening."
The manager at the store where we ate told me over the phone that she knows that that shortening is not safe for people with peanut allergies. As far as I know it is a corporate store. I just wanted to share what I found with others as I found out while researching peanut allergies both on this site and others that hydrongenated vegetable stuff should be avoided unless it states what vegetable it is.

Just to add to everything you just said, (edited), don't forget how much fat is in McDonald's food. We really don't eat there much at all but had to last Friday in a pinch (my groceries were an hour and 45 minutes late being delivered).

yarnwoman,
yes, the ingredient DOES list partially hydrogenated vegetable shortening.
But THEN if you go to the "other" choice on the ingredient list it will tell you what
that shortening is made with! And it doesn't list peanut oil.
I was only asking because this store may do its buying from sources that are not used by franchise bk's.

All I can say is I was told verbally on the phone by a manager that it does contain peanut and the only thing my son would be able to eat was soda and possibly a hamburger patty without the bun. this is a corporate store so I don't know about franchises that do their own thing. forgive me for trying to let people know what an actual person said not just an ingredient list that is on line. This manager took time out of her day to check with corporate headquarters and they said nothing is safe. I thought I was doing people a favor to share that information. next time I will keep the information to myself.

Please don't stop posting warnings about food! I found what the manager told you at BK very interesting and frightening. I will definately not allow my son to eat there without checking with our local one first.

I just want to say I appreciate both yarnwoman's and mom2two's comments. I don't think mom2two is challenging or undermining the first post, she is just exploring further and trying to get to the bottom of this little mystery. There seems to be a discrepency b/t what a manager told yarnwoman and what is posted on BK's website. That's good to know.

Hello,
I just joined this group and wow everyone should take a deep breath. Never listen to what a person says especially if they say they think so. In dealing with a life threatning subject you have to be sure. If I took what waitress or waiters or even managers said my son would not be here today.
I learned so much from the food allery network it has news letters that are execellent. As for McDonald or Burger king my son has been fine eating there. I never get him any desserts there because the Mcflurrys have cross-contaminaion so just skip the dessert. I thought that when it listed hydrogenated veg. oil they by law had to list its source. Thank you
Jody

yarnwoman,
you have misinterpretated my posts. I do not argue with you that the manager told you it was not safe. I am just wondering why the BK website does not list peanut oil in their hydrogenated shortening and wondered perhaps the reason the bk was not safe that you went to is because its independently owned and not a franchise.
I would certainly not go to that bk again if I were you but I still am wondering if this is true of all bk's.

First I want to apologize for what I said in some ways this is still all new to me and the fact that there are places out there that don't tell you things is scary. My son has never had worse then hives so far but it scares me to death all the same. I just wanted people to know along the same lines of the pillsbury cookies mentioned above that there are some BK's out there who don't go by the same ingredients and that even those who say here are our ingredients showing you the corporate listing but they do know that peanuts are in what is being used in their store. I am going to ask to read things from now on and not go by the list that is posted on the wall.

Howdy to all,
I had to make a new screen name, because I have AOL at work registered to me and I happen to be elsewhere this evening catching up on the PA boards.
Ok, we all need to realize that there is NO FAST FOOD place safe for our kids. Not a single one, they can change vendors like we change undies. Always keep that in the back of your minds. WOrking in the health care field, i see our dietary dept. change vendors all the time.
Our BK here is privately owned, by a very nice man and his wife, he owns about 13 of them around town and a few other restraunts.
He told me that he buys from Gordons and US FOODS, but a few years ago he bought from rykoff sexton, then changed over to Gordons over night because of price comparsion. He also said that you msut remmber the employee turn over in a fst food place and that most of them are HS kids trying to make a buck or two. He has educated his employees on food allergies or at least he attempts to get to each and every new one, and he posts the allergy alerts from FAN, but he says some people can be absent minded and if the parents and kids ate there last week or even a day ago, they should contimue to ask, because it can change over night.
Another thing, can we all get along, I think everyone of us, is in this for the right reason, and always remember, everyones opinion is their own, on this site, no one is ever always right or always wrong either.
We just want what is best for our kids, or if we are adults maybe they are offering us advice to help our kids grow up with this stupid thing called PA and all the other allergies that is causes or comes with it.
If we used up all the energy it takes to get nasty with someone on the site and put it to good research or good efforts towards the FDa or the politcians (especially American ones) to get the word out about PA, we might get a little further with our CURE for our kids. Just thought i would add that.
So if you are ever in the South Bend area of Indiana, you can check the Quality dining webisite at [url="http://www.qualitydining.com"]www.qualitydining.com[/url] and you will see their list of ingridients for the day.

pWe were just at Burger King yesterday. My severely peanut allergic son (he even reacts to just touch) had that exact meal--chicken nuggets and fries. He's never had a reaction at that restaurant. From what I remember reading on this site, BK is one of the few fast-food restaurants that are "safe" for our peanut allergic children. That's what is so frustrating about this allergy, you just never know when or where they are going to have a reaction. Is your daughter allergic to anything else besides peanuts? How is she doing now?/p

pThis just a thought: I wonder if some one who was preparing the food could have been having a snack (containing peanut butter) that got on your child's food. The bad thing is that you can never be 100% sure what caused the reaction. Lately I have noticed that the fast food places in our town have become very sloppy and seem to have problems finding employees. We have gotten to the point that we dine out less and less. It just makes me too nervous. I wish that every restaurant had to educate and maintain food allergy awareness./p

pIn our local Burger Kings there are no Peanut Butter Sandwiches being served in the meals, but, they do offer a peanut butter pie as a desert item. Just wondering if maybe the reaction was due to cross contamination of some kind. Did your child play in their play area or eat at a table or did you bring it home?/p

pMy daughter had alot of other allergies at about 18 months old. She outgrew most of the food ones except peanuts. (Which her allergist said she never would outgrow it.) When I was in the hospital with her the doctor there said the person handling the food could have contaminated it. My husband brought the food home to eat. Some one from the quality assurance is supposed to call me back by the end of this week. Has anyone else heard that the ingredient natural flavoring can be peanut?/p

pWe have eaten at Burger King many times and my "airborne" p.a. child has never had a reaction. We don't eat there often now because she doesn't like the sesame seeds. You can bet I'll be looking the menu over more closely for that peanut butter pie (and other rest. for that matter). If I were you, I would contact the manager and B.K. Corporate headquarters and report what happened. It might help keep it from happening again./p

pYes, a natural flavoring can contain peanut. I used to go crazy every time I saw that on a label. I called MANY food companies over that. My rule of thumb now is.. if it is a major manufacturer and it has natural flavoring - I allow it (with the exception of Quaker) if it is a little company I don't. Most companies I called told me the same thing- "if there was a peanut flavoring it would not be "lumped" under natural flavoring, they would list it separately because it is a top allergen." This is a comfort level thing and this is where I am now./p

McDonalds seseame seeds bother her as well. These fast foods places are in fact getting pretty sloppy ay how they are serving food. Especially with drive throughs. Check out how they go through picking up food and putting it in bags! Sorry to complain/p

pWe do not eat at BK anymore as our daughter is soy allergic as well as peanut. BK has French Toast sticks that are fried and do contain soy flour, in my opinion that could contaminate the oil. Any one else hae an opionion on this? Also the chicken patties that are grilled on the same belt and fall in the same catch bin as the hamburgers, contain soy protein and soy flour. Our duaghter had a mild reaction, one that was questionable about going to the hospital. We were in a strange rural area and did not feel comfortable about the hospital situation esp. since she did respond well to the Benadryl. /p

pHydrolized plant protein is a filler type product used in a lot of foods - it can be derived from a variety of products including peanut and soy. The problem is that most companies, when you call, will not identify the actual plant used to make the hpp (I think it comes from a third party supplier so they don't really know). My allergist lists it on the list of products to avoid for peanut allergy and i think it is on FAN's list too. BTW it is in lots of foods, including most Campbell's soups./p

pFan actually removed them from how to read a label for a peanut free diet. I called to ask why one thing had them listed and one didnt. She said that they were advised to remove the hydrolised plant protein and hydrolised vegetable protein off the sheets because manufactures now list what makes up that ingedient. I told her that I just saw it on a label. So I would still watch out for it, but that is what FAN is advising.br /

pI just found this topic and it relates to my son as well. I have been to buger king about 3 or 4 times with my son. Each time, he threw up and got hives. He had chicken nuggets and french fries (which he has no problems with anywhere else.) I thought it might have been reflux because he hadn't been diagnosed with that before the incidences, but I don't think so anymore. I know he is not allergic to peanut oil, so that couldn't be it either. I refuse to ever go back there and I think I'm going to request a list of ingredients./p

pI live in the South (obviously) where chicken and seafood are often fried in peanut oil as it cooks at a higher temp. without burning so food cooks quicker. I wonder if the chicken nuggets were prepared with peanut oil. I do not consider peanut oil safe, no matter which country it comes from. Not worth the risk of a single trace of the allergen being present./p

pChris, I have always gone through the wait of finding out ingredients. However at burger King i have been told there are no peanut products in the food. The thing is I think people fib about the ingredients because they do not want to be bothered with looking. I have managed to leave many places because of this. I would never stay anywhere we were not comfortable. It is just amazing the laziness of some people in the fast food restaurants. Yes I do get dirty looks,but Christopher will always be first. We will probably never go into a friendly restaurant again. You are so right in your posting about never forgetting where ever we are we should check the ingredients. If the waiter or waitress acts ignorant then do not take their word,because I feel they do not care enough to check.. Best wishes claire/p

There are so many better choices (food from home, for instance).Fast food is a cop out,our children's health and life is more important./p

pPlease note: We are all in this leaky boat together. Sniping doesn't help anyone. I believe very strongly in feeding my daughter only healthy food whenever I can. However, when I am traveling, particularly in remote areas, opting for the "healthy" restaurants is not always safe. I would rather go to Subway than Wendys or Burger King or McDonalds. But Subway bakes peanut cookies in the same ovens as their sandwich bread. I would rather go to a quiet diner, but if I am far from home and a hospital, I would rather not take the risk. /p
pIn fact, I try to take food along for Patricia. But sometimes even the anti-fastfood moms find themselves relying on fast food. I don't take Patricia out to fast food much at all. But when I need to, it's nice to know which places are probably the safest./p

pWe have several Burger Kings in our area. One of the Burger Kings had a Peanut Butter pie as a promotional product for several months. I asked the manager how long they planned on selling it, and they said about 3 to 4 months. I said the sooner they get rid of it, the better. Needless to say, I didn't go to that Burger King until the promotion was over. However, on a positive note, the dessert was enclosed in a box when given to customers. Of course, the peanut residue could be all over the tables and play areas. As for the employees, I've worked in food service, and I'm sure if they're selling it, they're eating it too and probably not washing their hands./p

pWe had a problem at Wendy's, Fries and Burger. But Chick-Fil-A, my son loves it. He eats the kids chicken meal and has no sign of reactions. I wonder if each Chick-Fil-A uses different oils./p

pChick-Fil-A restaurants all use peanut oil as far as I know. The kind that they use is not likely to have peanut protein in it but most of us here are not willing to take the risk. My concern would be them using an unsafe type if they were to run out./p

pCan you tell me if any of your experiences with Burger King or Subway was in Canada, I am not sure if the canadain restraunts are different with the ones in the states. My allergy to peanuts is very deadly as many others are./p
