My p.a. son and I eats there without a problem. But I have been sick in the past. I thought maybe it was samonilla poisoning from the chicken or something. I stopped eating it for years after that. It's okay now.

I just emailed them the other day to find out about save food! peanutfree & eggfree
I got a responce that they do not share ingredient info "spiecal recipe"
& that if I really required more info I would have to have a Dr's note on "Dr's letterhead" That confirms my son has such allergies!!!!
I was rather disappointed in them to say the least!

I've e-mailed them before about this too, and had a much better experience - I didn't get an ingredient listing, but I got a document that listed the major allergens (peanut, egg, wheat etc.) and which items may contain them (this was for their restaurants in Canada).
We've eaten at KFC without incident since then. I didn't ask for specific ingredients used in the "special recipe", though.

I've eaten at KFC many times with no incident (I am only PA). I called their headquarters and was informed that they do not use any peanuts or peanut products in their food. This was about a year and a half ago.

Yes, my daughter had a reaction (hives) 2 or 3 years ago. We didn't know what she was allergic to at the time, but now we know it's only peanuts. I called KFC this past week, and they said they don't use any peanut products. So I don't know what to think. She ate chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, coleslaw and a biscuit. We didn't let her eat the gravy or coleslaw for a long time after that, but we tried each thing alone to try to figure out what it was. Now that her allergy has gotten more serious, I don't know if I dare let her eat there even though they say they don't use peanut products. Does anyone know if they used to use peanut oil or other peanut products a few years ago?

I am not sure if they used to use peanut products. My daughter is 4 and we found out about her PA 2 years ago. She loves KFC for a "treat" and so I checked with them and their answer was and still has been that they do not use peanut products. She has eaten their popcorn chicken, mac n' cheese, and biscuits with no problem.

KFC is safe in Canada. I have eaten it since I was a kid, but only rarely as it is a bit greasy/fatty.

I know this thread was started a long time ago, but I see recent posts.
however "out there" this sounds...I used to work at a Burger King in high school and it was common (to my amazement) that sometimes the workers there fry snickers bars as a treat. I complained insanely when I found that out, but, I mean geez...mostly the workers in fast food places are high school kids who don't think about the harm.
Scary thought, I know.

My husband and I eat KFC every other weekend and I have never had any problems. Although I don't eat mashed potatoes and gravy to begin with.
