The list will only get longer if we let the restaurants know about the allergens, the more who do the higher the likelihood they will consider making changes to there menu items.

My son has had severe reactions to both Red Robin and Outback Steakhouse.  We no longer eat out, found it is the safest way and it is healthier.  We go out on date nights.

It depends on the Chipotle, the ones by us use sunflower oil with some items using rice bran.  Our son has a soy intolerance and we've always been able to avoid soy at Chipotle.

I think requiring restaurants to server allergy food is goings to far.  it's a different category from schools.  People do not have eat in restaurants. The way children are required to attends school. Sorry, but this is going too far.
