My daughter has friend that work/ed at Wendy's I absolutely love their chili.
They have all said, at one time or another, that the burgers that aren't sold that day or in a certain amount of time, are used as such: they take the top and bottom bun off, scrape all the condiments off and chop up the meat and make the chili with that meat.
Has anyone had a reaction to Wendy's chili?

2010-Doctor diagnosed me as Celiac then took diagnoses back, then said avoid gluten for life
2009 – Low T3 thyroid hormone, muscle twitching and adrenal fatigue
2006- Elevated Speckled ANA. GI suggested Celiac. Started gluten-free diet, but sloppily
2005 - Thought I had wheat "allergy." Stopped eating bread, oats problem too
College years - Still vegan -sickest point in life. Every classic celiac symptom
Teenage years - Stomach pain prompted veganism -> BIG mistake!
Child - Awful gas, D, C. Chronic infections, appendix and tonsils removed

Flour is not used a a thickener in Wendy's chili and if workers are recycling old burgers then they are violating Wendy's policies and probably some health laws. The chili is on their gluten-free list. Besides, I didn't think that Wendy's burgers were put on buns and condiments put on ahead of time.
I know, that's why I felt it important to post this information. It's not like we were all sitting around talking about gluten...these are teenagers just talking about their jobs. They do pre-dress the burgers at height times, like lunch.
I love Wendy's, and I love their chili and the other day when I stopped to get some, I remembered what these kids said so I skipped the chili and got a baked potato instead and it was wonderful.
I just felt it was important to share this information, that's all.

Of course, eating at restaurant that serves wheat products is always a bit of a risk. You never know if the workers are following protocol or not.

I had a grilled chicken with tomato, lettuce and honey mustard sauce and I put it on a Against the Grain toasted roll......oh man did that hit the spot. I made my own Ore-Ida fries to go with it which were way better than the ones Wendy's has.

I'm never surprised to see the people who don't eat fast food but do waste their time reading threads about it....
I personally travel a lot and am going on a 2 week road trip, so Wendy's has been a lifesaver many a time when I've been famished and just couldn't fathom another Lara bar or piece of fruit.

Lara bars are cruel and unusual punishment.
