I had seen a post a week or so ago about the dangers of eating at Wendy's. I can't seem to find it anymore but I was wondering why there is a low level of confidence about eating Wendy's?

We go there quite often. It's one of my PA son's favorite restaurants.We've never had a problem and after reading the allergy statements online the only peanuts I find seem to be the the mix-ins for the frostys and other deserts and some salads.

You might be remembering my comment. We don't eat at Wendy's-not b/c I've deemed it unsafe-we just haven't cked. However, a friend of mine dealing with other allergens besides peanuts has had issues there with food (dairy allergy in particular) and has found their information to be incorrect. Her daughter had a reaction.
It might be okay for only a peanut allergy. Again, I haven't cked so I can't say for sure.

Thanks for clarifying. We are frequent visitors to Wendy's and as I said, it's one of my son's favorites.

No problem Dianne. I noticed my above post had a typo. I meant to write "dairy" allergy. I think dairy allergies can pose more problems for people than for those with just a peanut allergy.
I'm glad you and your son have had a great experience!

We used to eat at Wendy's fairly often with my PA-only son, however he had a reaction at our last visit. He had chicken nuggets and mandarin oranges. The oranges are stored in the same refrigerator as the mix-ins for the frosty's, so we think that is where cross-contamination occurred. I no longer feel comfortable eating at Wendy's with my son.

I have recently started eating at Wendy's and have had no problem and I am deadly allergic to peanuts. I just stay away from the salads and desserts, as those may contain nuts.
