  1. Checking the link the roast beef sandwich uses the seaseme seed bun, and looking at that it does not appear to contain MIlk, can someone verify this.

    • I have eaten at Arby’s twice in the last 6 months. Both times my child has gotten sick from dairy. We ordered the roast beef sandwich and potatoes cakes. I am thinking it is the potatoes because they are fried in oil with milk products. This has not been an issue at other restaurants, but clearly there is something in one of the two products. Beware if you are extremely sensitive.

  2. Seems we need to somehow get the idea across that just labeling every menu item on an Allergen sheet with simple MFSW isn’t really helping. Most menu items are an assembly of discrete parts (burger=patty,condiments,vegetables, bun) and if we know the allergens of those parts, we can figure out if a particular menu item is ok to eat. Depending on your issues, many times, removing one or two parts resolves the problem. Most places are happy to do that. Makes ordering a pain, but works for the most part. Does the fish patty in an Arby’s fish sandwich have milk in the breading? Which buns or wraps lack dairy? Inquiring minds want to know…

    The majority of Margarine does contain dairy ingredients and should be avoided depending on the severity of your sensitivity or allergy. I personally have to avoid all dairy ingredients but some may be okay with the dairy parts in margarine.

    According to Arby’s website, the cherry turnovers contain milk. I looked through the ingredients and the only dairy item I came across was margarine but in parenthesis nothing says milk or whey
