    I’m not sure I am understand what you are stating is dairy free from Burger King. Are you indicating that the chicken nuggets and breaded crispy chicken sandwiches are dairy free, but may be fried in oil that has been contaminated w/ dairy? If so, this is not true. I called them just yesterday, 4/20/13 and they say that their nuggets, strips, and crispy chicken sandwiches are coated with buttermilk which is obviously not dairy free. This makes me question whether the rest of the suggestions on your fast food dairy free menu options are truly dairy free.

      Hi, Elenie,

      Here is the allergen listing from Burger King’s website dated April 2013: http://www.bk.com/cms/en/us/cms_out/digital_assets/files/pages/MenuNutritionInformation_April2013_1.pdf
      It states that, while some of their breaded chicken products contain dairy, the ones listed above do not.
      You were very responsible to do what we recommend in our disclaimer: if severe allergies or intolerances are a concern, contact the restaurant directly before purchasing or consuming one of their products. Cross-contamination of potential food allergens should always be considered a possibility in a fast food restaurant.

    Just FYI I was double checking the link of their allergen info. The Onion Rings do contain whey, which breaks my heart. I Love BK fresh onion rings. Well, I used to anyway :) Just trying to be helpful!

    I hope they are not coating their chicken products in buttermilk and not sticking it in the ingredients listings. Or that certain locations are not altering products on their own. Makes it hard to avoid some of these allergens.

    Also the ask directly. I don’t understand why people recommend this, when I used to work at a restaurant (low level, not manager or cook) I had no idea about what ingredients were in what, this stuff is all processed and made elsewhere, and why would i know what is in it. I got no indication that anyone else had read product labels backward and forward or had printed listings to reference if asked.

    When I ask at a restaurant whether milk ingredients are in something i always just get a blank faced stare followed by them asking an assistant manager or manager who either responds with a blank faced stare or just guesses or says what they think, or what they think I want to hear. Personally, I don’t ever trust a human’s response. I usually just rely on the online ingredient listings and only resort to asking if I was not able find it online or forgot to look but managed to talk myself into eating somewhere on impulse.

    My milk issue isn’t anaphylactic type of issue though. It’s just an eosiniphilic allergy. If I had a potentially anaphylactic type, I’d be scared to trust human responses for reasons noted above. I doubt you will often get an accurate/knowledgeable response yet people feel obligated to respond or just do so anyway and may not qualify there level of knowledge.

    Just my opinion on everything.

    To clarify… If you did have an serious allergy and were choosing to eat somewhere and had read a printed listing online or in the store (where available, only found one place I eat at that has a binder of ingredients) you would obviously want to check if these are accurate as of the current date and whether they are abiding by them; but ignoring something more concrete to solely rely on humans who may have no idea or special knowledge, but leave you thinking they are some kind of specialized internal dietary and allergen specialist wouldn’t be a great idea.
