Hi, we go to McDonald's with our pa Ds. He eats chicken nuggets and fries. He doesn't like pop so he drinks water. I don't know if all the McDonalds nuggets and fries are safe, though. I'm pretty sure the cookies are NOT safe. Hope this helps.Rj

My son is a McDonald's fanatic. He has eaten their cheeseburgers, fries, nuggets, sausage sandwich and hashbrowns. He has had all varieties of soda and vanilla milkshakes and cones. I avoid those McD's where the McFlurry toppings are messy and near the shake/ice cream machine. (in the U.S - in Canada the McFlurries are safe) Their cookies are indeed NOT safe.

My PA daughter also eats McD's chicken nuggets, hash browns, and fries. That's about all she'll eat there....but we've had no problems! =)

My dd - pa, tn and others - eats at McDonald's regularly. She eats the pancakes and sausage breakfast with no problems as well as hash browns and orange juice. She has also had the McNuggets and fries with no problems. I had read in other posts that McDonald's uses sesame oil in their nuggets but when I looked at their web site recently for ingredients, sesame oil was not listed. I think I did check their site in the past and sesame oil was listed as an ingredient in the McNuggest; I'm not sure if they may have changed the recipe recently.

I called them wanting to know if there was dairy in their bread and while I was on the phone I noticed on their allergy sheet they sent me they do not have soybean oil marked for their french fries. They use a combination of corn oil,soybean oil and I think cottonseed for the fries. I asked they girl why this isn't marked and she didn't know. It makes me question if they allergy sheet they mail out with everything marked is accurate with other things.

I can't even imagine what life would be like if my PA son couldn't eat McDonald's!!!! I feel very safe with their food and my son has now graduated from the Happy Meals to the Value Meals (the tears are flowing).
The recent news has been about the "change" in oils for the fries....supposed to be more "healthy" (did I just type that word?). They didn't change the type just the formula. We frequent the same McDonald's in our area, but, if we are traveling or just out of the area, we always check just in case.

In Canada, the McFlurries are safe. They do not use Snickers here.. instead, they use peanut-free Nestle chocolate bars. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

[b]Well.. it happened!!! I had a reaction to McDonalds!!! Here is what I ate: Spicey Chicken Sandwich, Fish Fillet, Fries, Apple Pie, I either had a bite of these.. or they were in my bag that day. Now I'm extra sensitive.. I literally react walking in a tight candy isle.. so judge this for yourself.. but be careful![/b]
So which ones did you eat? I am a little confused. Does the apple pie have a warning on it? I never gave that to my son.

To be honest.. I can't remember who ate what.. but to my recolection.. nothing at McDonalds has nuts in it.. they are all pre packaged. The only loose thing is say the McFlurry toppings.. butterfinger etc.. Like I said.. I am ultra sensitive so it could have been something as little as someone made a butterfinger mcflurry and touched my food! I have never reacted to any item there.. including the pie. I truely believe this was cross contamination.
