  1. Ok, I checked on their ingredient listing and found Turkey Burger, looks good on Wheat bun. Curley fries also look ok, with no milk in them. Must have checked the wrong box on the Allergen list. Thanks again!

  2. Thank you for your research! I looked at the Hardee’s link listed above to see if I could get an ingredients listing for the Turkey Burger, but couldn’t find it; will check somewhere else. But did notice that they have Curley fries checked for having milk in them in their allergen list. Might consider removing from “No dairy” category. thanks!
