As a parent of a child with severe egg/milk allergies (all byproducts and proteins) as well as exercise induced anaphylactic to wheat.  This change that CFA did is so disheartening!! I called a local store to try to understand and then they referred me to corporate.  I did call corporate and put in a complaint.  I am supposed to hear something back from them either by email or phone.  I appreciate the alert.  I hope CFA is able to change back.  My child was so excited when she realized she could eat like a β€œnormal” person, her words not mine, with friends at a place that most people like (well except for our peanut allergy friends . ).

keep up the good work notifying us of food allergy alerts!!


We are working to get additional information and will share updates as they become available.

We have gotten, but not yet confirmed, that the change to the allergen and ingredients listing is due to an ingredient from a supplier with undeclared milk. According to the information shared by a community member, Chick-fil-A is working to get this resolved to remove milk from the products.
