I am so mad at my at my self, I knew better, but I went ahead and ordered fries and a soda. New batch the worker washed his hands and put them in a bag. Well as soon as I was finished well almost i was sick and double over with pain. I woke up with nightsweats this morning. I know for sure that it was the fries. I just thought I would vent. I thought they would be ok. I was wrong !! Though two days ago I had them form another McDonalds and I was fine. What gives. UUGGH !!!

Sorry you're feeling bad. The McDonald's french fries in the USA are not gluten-free, I believe.

Thank you. I thought I had read that they were ok. I know I won't eat them again.

They are gluten free and have tested repeatedly to be so (in the USA). https://www.celiac.com/st_prod.html?p_prodid=1303

However, cross contamination is a large issue. I cannot eat them...I get sick. But in terms of the actual fry and testing through reputable labs, plus that GIG backs them, says that they are safe. I'm not sure what the other issue is, as I repeatedly got sick there. Some stores are better than others, just like any other chain.

If you get sick, don't eat it is the best advice. Not worth risking, for me.

I hope you recover quickly. Hugs to you.

Funny you posted this today. I wasn't going to eat their french fries, but I got them for my kids and supposedly they are safe. I started eating them, because it was lunch time, and ate more then I was going too. I was SO sick lastnight and today. Horrible Gerd lastnight and this morning, D this morning and feel gross. Now I am still scared to eat, because I just don't feel like suffering again. Of course I was feeling great before I ate them. When will I ever learn.

I got sick several times from McDonalds fries. I don't if it is the grease or CC. I don't eat fried foods that often because most fried foods aren't gluten free (unless I make them myself which I am usually too lazy to do).

I get ill a lot from greasy foods too, I think. Even when they are gluten-free...sometimes just the unhealthiness gets to me.
