Burger King French Fries No Longer gluten-free

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Just an FYI everyone.  I got a notice today from FARE - Food Allergy Research & Education that says the following:

 

 

Ingredient Notice: Burger King Changes Cooking Procedure for French Fries

 

 

 

These notices are distributed when food manufacturers provide information to FARE about upcoming changes in their products.

Burger King Corporation (BKC) is committed to providing accurate nutrition and allergen information for our guests so that they are able to meet their individual needs. As part of this commitment, our process includes timely dissemination of accurate information.

Accordingly, we are informing the food allergen community about the change in cooking procedure for our French Fries. Starting on August 3rd 2015, French Fries will no longer be cooked in a separate fryer. They will be cooked in the same fryer as Hash Browns that contain wheat flour, resulting in the likely risk of cross-contact with a known allergen for the French fries. Therefore, from now on, French Fries may contain wheat.

We are updating our website, bk.com to reflect this change. Our guests will continue to find complete and up-to-date nutritional and allergen information for BURGER KING® menu items on our website.

Thanks for the info. I would never risk eating in a place like that anyway. Even if they DID have dedicated fryers there is too much risk of CC at a place like that. Employees who touch buns also touch french fries. And besides, almost evey time I ever went there or McD's, they screwed up the order in one way or another. I'd never trust them to keep my food gluten-free.


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

Ditto that! My hubs & I used to make bets on what part of our order they would screw up this time. it was always something. :rolleyes:
