Has anyone seen the new ingredients listings page on the McD's website?

[url="http://www.mcdonalds.com/app_controller.nutrition.categories.ingredients..."]http://www.mcdonalds.com/app_controller.nutrition.categories.ingredients...

It used to list cross-contamination. For example, if the crispy chicken sandwich or nuggets were fried in the same oil as the fish sandwich, I thought it had listed fish as an ingredient or in a May contain statement. Am I correct?

It used to be in chart form and I liked it much better then. A chart is simple, clear, easy to read.
Regarding cross contamination, it does list "may contain peanuts and tree nuts" on the McDonaldland cookies, so are they still labeling for possible cross contamination, but in a different format?
I see what you are saying about a change from the way they used to label certain things though. I just sent McD's an email asking if they are labeling for cross contamination or not. I'll let you know what they say.

someone here was able to see the packaging and there was a 'may contain' warning on the label. I think it was posted in the general discussion forum.

Was that in MommaBear's post about her experience at McD's when the buns first came out?

can't remember exactly why, but if I remember right, I flat out refused to let my children eat them. Trying to remember if it was like the 'homebaked' cookie thing. (In that, I looked at the product guide the manager brought from the back in a ring binder, and found they were unsafe.) Next time I'm there, I'll check again. Right now, I can't stand the site of mcdonalds or fast food. Prego revulsion....

The fresh baked cookies still do not have a warning on them. Does anyone have information on them? I need to call but I keep forgeting. The regular packaged cookies still have the warning, but not the fresh ones. I hope they are safe!

when i bought the fresh baked cookies (due to no warning on the website) I was shocked to turn the package (like a french fry paper sleeve) over and see something like "may contain traces of peanut dust" I called the 1- 800 number and told them how misleading this was and that they needed to fix their website -- this was at least 4-6 months ago -- i posted about it then.

I would not trust their "May Contain" statements, but read the ingredients lists carefully instead. I am allergic to soy, and their allergen statement on the fries says "CONTAINS: WHEAT AND MILK" They do not, however, mention anything about soy - which is the oil they use to fry.

It's not just McDonald's that doesn't list soybean oil or lecithin in an allergy warning. I saw numerous products that similarly did not consider it an allergen when we were completely eliminating soy from DD's diet. I think many manufacturers don't consider highly refined soybean oil or lecithin to be allergens because many people with soy allergy can tolerate them. DD could.
