I was just checking on their hash browns after having a traveling incident about 30 minutes after eating a McMuffin minus the muffin and a hash brown. Here's the link:

Not really new. ;)

As with the french fries, the hydrolyzed wheat has been process to the point of no detectable gluten.

But, as in every restaurant (especially fast foods), chance for cross contamination/contact is high.

Oh, wow, a few months ago I was eating scrambled eggs, a piece of sausage, and a hash brown from McDonald's everyday for breakfast. I wasn't having a reaction, so I thought everything was fine, I mean really - it's just eggs, potatoes, and sausage, it'll be ok...uh, no...two weeks later I discovered my system shut down and wasn't digesting anything and I ended up in the hospital in EXCRUTIATING

I was impressed that they put the McMuffin, minus the muffin, in a conainer by itself. It hadn't been assembled with the muffin yet. Got a couple of those during my trip with no side effects. Well, until today. Not sure which was cross contaminated.

Gosh, how terrible! We all have our lessons to learn, don't we? The odd part is even when I THINK I'm being careful, sometimes all of my "science" backfires on me.

Hope you are feeling better now :)

Yes, you do have to be careful with potatoes. My family thinks I am overeacting to ask at restaurants but I can't tell you how many times I have been told that there is wheat in the potatoes. The only things we would get at McDonalds are the sliced apples, maybe a side salad and a drink. I don't trust them.

Frankly, I am now terrified of McDonald's, it's in my psyche, kinda like getting food poisoning from eating something, it ruins you on it. I don't think I could bring myself to eat there if I had to...
