Chick-fil-A fries all of its items in 100% peanut-oil. One good thing about them is that they clearly print this fact on all of their wrappers.

Problem being that if you're close enough to read the wrapper, you've already purchased the product. We ran into this 'way back when.' I think if it were really important to them from an allergy standpoint, they would be well served by a few posters or placards, or a note on the overhead menu.
(For our part, it was a long-day-tired-mommy-2000-miles-from-home MISTAKE, and honestly probably the only time I hadn't asked about ingredients.)
I do like the chain as a whole -- and ate there fairly often during pregnancy -- but think they could do better in this area.

We have been told about this also - we just don't eat there but it is a very popular fast food place in the South.

I have never eaten their food, but I have always been aware that they use peanut oil!
I am glad you posted about this since I believe this company is expanding and they are also opening a free standing location near us...and possibly others around the states.
Watch out for Chick-fil-A......PEANUT OIL!!!!

Yes it is always good to have reminders. Chick-Fil-A is in all our major malls here. I bought some of those disposabe place mats so that I can lay them on the table in the eating area. I am sure there is peanut residue all over the place from chick-fil-a and from steak escape which also fries in peanut oil).

I was so sorry to learn of Chick-Fil-A's use of peanut oil a few years ago, but they do clearly label things to let us know. The sandwiches are the best, and their play areas are the cleanest. The toys are educational (we've seen Between the Lions and Veggie Tales toys). And their advertising is hilarious! It was my favorite fast food place.
Initially we were told by our doctor and elsewhere that regular peanut oil was safe, because it no longer had the enzyme that causes trouble for PA folks. It was cold pressed peanut oil we had to worry about.
For the longest time, everytime we pulled up to a C-F-A, DS would beg not to eat there. We didn't even attempt a trip there for about a year, and the next time I pulled up, there was no resistance. Well, DS got hives all over his face after eating a chicken nugget. So we don't go back--and we assume that regular peanut oil is NOT safe (he also had an anaphylactic reaction after eating some chips at Panera that were cooked in peanut oil before we realized it).

we took our girls fairly often to chick-fil-a when we lived in memphis. i was less aware of the risks with PA then and didn't even realize they fried in peanut oil. thankfully, we never had a reaction there (which i find amazing). as soon as i became a little more educated, we stopped eating there immediately. i figured that they fried the protein out or something and that's why we didn't have a reaction. i'm still not really educated about what types of peanut oil are the most unsafe. we avoid it all now anyway. maybe we just got really, really lucky when they ate at chick-fil-a. anyhow, i wouldn't let the girls eat the food there again just to be safe. too bad though, it was a very kid-friendly place (other than the peanut oil). joey

My PA DD has eaten here, prior to us knowing that they use peanut oil. She did not have a reaction and was fine w/ nuggets and fries. She has also eaten Nutella for YEARS (tested negative to hazelnuts) and they use a heat processed peanut oil. SHe has never had a problem w/ the Nutella brand. However, now I buy a chocolate hazelnut spread that does not use peanut oil. I do this not because of any past reactions, but because I am more educated now and I didn't want future confusion about 'when to avoid peanut oil'. It is just easier to avoid ALL peanut oil, rather then avoid peanut oil unless ' . . .' KWIM?

Hi Before we knew my son was PA we ate there very often. We no longer eat inside there but I will go thru the drive-thru and get him the grilled chicken sandwich and the fruit cup. He loves it. He also likes the milkshakes there but I have not checked the ingredients. I used to get him the vanilla because I did not know you were supposed to call on all things, but he has never had a problem. But we do eat it around him without problem.

We recently talked to our Allergist about Chick-Fil-A and she assured us it would be fine for our DD who is 4 and is highly allergic to Peanuts (including touch sensitve)and to a lesser extent Tree Nuts. We have now eaten there several times with no problems. She especially likes the fruit cups too.

We ate at chick fil a when my som=ne was 20 months and as soon as he ate some chicken nuggets and fries -- only a few bites he proceeded to vomit all over the place -- he had a shocked look on his face and within a few minutes he was fine however he did not want to eat -- can you blame him?!
We did not find out about his allergy until 24 months and when we look back at this incident we realize it is better for us to stay away -- it is just food.
This is just our experience.

My DS, when little, refused to go there for about a year, and then when I finally got him to eat some nuggest, he had a rash around his face. Never again.
He's also had a severe (vomiting) reaction to chips fried in regular (not cold pressed) peanut oil.
I don't care what our first doctor said and the information from FAAN says. Regular peanut oil can be dangerous for peanut allergic individuals. Our new doctor recognizes this.

In case anyone is interested from Chick-fil-a's website:
Q. Are oils derived from foods that can cause allergy, such as peanut oil, also allergenic?
A. Not usually. Most commercial oils such as peanut oil are highly refined (hot solvent extracted), which removes protein from the product. These types of oil are most commonly used in commercial food preparation. Since it is protein in allergenic foods that causes food allergy, highly refined oils are non-allergenic. Research has shown that individuals with a severe peanut allergy have not had reactions to heat processed oils. However, people with a food allergy should avoid

I just have to say that my dd has reacted to trace amounts of peanut oil and I wouldn't take her there. Her reaction was at In & Out and although they don't use peanut oil the Company that packages there oil also packages peanut oil. Which that trace amount cause her to have a severe anaphylactic reaction. Maybe, it works for some people but not for us.

What I am confused about is why so many people will allow their kids to eat foods cooked in peanut oil. I don't care if it is 'supposed' to be safe. If we are teaching our kids to stay away from anything peanut then why allow this as an exception?

I react to heat processed peanut oil. I either vomit immediately or suffer with diarrhea for days afterward. At the very least wouldn't peanut oil be manufactured in a facility that processes peanuts??? Somewhere on these boards a few years ago I read the exact statistics for protein found in refined peanut oil - perhaps posted by CorvallisMom. I'll do a search and see if I can find it...

Well, I couldn't find the old post I was looking for, but here's basically what I remember from it...
Peanut contains many different proteins. It is possible to be allergic to any of them. The heat process of extracting the oil destroys all but 3(??) of the proteins, so many peanut allergic individuals are not allergic to peanut oil - a few are. I believe the peanut protein Ara h2 is the most common allergy and it is removed during the heat processing.

The mean protein content of peanut oil is reduced at each stage
of the refining process described above. Although the results differed
depending on whether the Lowry assay or the Pierce Micro bicinchoninic
acid assay was used for protein analysis, there was a consistent
downward trend with each analytical procedure. The mean protein
content in extracts of oil prepared by two separate procedures and
analysed by each assay were 187

Hello jenbug,
We don't live near chick-fil-a but I have definitely read stories of peanut allergic individuals eating there. We have a number of posts about various PA folks eating at chick-fil-a. You can most easily access them by going to the search box at the upper right corner of any page on peanutallergy.com and typing in chick-fil-a. I tried this search and am pasting the link here:
http://www.peanutallergy.com/sponsored/search-results?searchKey=chick-fi...
My personal view on eating at chick-fil-a? I know people say it is safe to eat some peanut oil, and some even do eat there. It's a comfort level thing for me--it is not worth the risk. I have seen my son have a very scary reaction and I don't want to see a repeat. Likewise, he remembers the big reaction and does not want to experience it again. That's just how we handle it. Every one has different comfort levels, and I strongly believe you should do what makes you feel most comfortable.
Hope this helps!
Take care,
Jennifer B

I wanted to comment on peanut oil for you and others who have questions regarding using it.
Peanut oil is supposed to be so highly refined that there is no peanut protein left. Peanut protein is what allergic individuals react to.
However, there are some oils that are more or less refined than others. How would you know what you are getting?
Like Jennifer--we steer clear of peanut oil for this reason alone.
And you are right--there are other places to eat. Or perhaps you could order something that is not friend in the peanut oil for the peanut allergic individual.

Below is a response from the Children's Hospital website. I remeber our Dr. telling us that refined was OK and cold pressed was not. Too much for us to navigate through. If it is peanut oil of any kind we make another choice. Next week my son's Cub Scouts is having their Den Banquet catered by Chic-fil-A. We will be bringing our own nuggetts.
Is peanut oil a risk?
The problem with peanut allergy is the protein but not the oil (fat) in the peanut. In small studies refined peanut oils have been shown to be safe. Cold pressed peanut oil does contain peanut protein and should be avoided. Unfortunately it is often difficult to guarantee that the oil is sufficiently refined to remove all traces of peanut protein. Avoidance of peanut oil is often advised particularly for people who have had the more severe life threatening reactions

My dd is extremely sensitive to peanut - tonight, for example, she had hives and itching all over from "brownie bites" that were made in the same facility as tree nuts! BUT - we do eat at Chick Fil A every single Wednesday with no problem.
I probably wouldn't if we hadn't BEEN eating there before her reaction. After her first peanut reaction I told her dr. - "it can't be peanuts, we eat chick fil a ALL the time"...but he explained the difference.
Unfortunately, she is also allergic to sunflower oil and cottonseed oil, so we can't eat most places that use "vegetable" oil...so, ironically Chick Fil A is the safest place for us, lol.
However, Chick Fil A's peanut oil is the only that we will eat. It has to be refined and without protein to fry in, you can't fry with cold-pressed oil. But it is such a personal choice whether it is a "risk" worth taking. We have just personally encountered more trace proteins in processed packaged foods and bakery goods...

My three year old has a severe peanut allergy and sensativities to tree nuts. As a personal choice we stay away from Chic-fil-a. Rather be safe than sorry. We also stay clear of alot of restraunts in general if they have a lot of peanut dishes, nut toppings on deserts, etc. Just the site of their brownies with the walnuts at the counters makes me nervous. I would say depending on the type of reaction, it is a personal call. My son's first exposure nearly killed him in less than 20 minutes. We were warned that his next exposure could be a faster reaction. No thanks; we'll just go to another resturant. Be sure to check all the lables and ingreadents online.
Good luck!
Robin
