Other Allergen Notes: Their gluten-free bun is currently free of dairy, nuts, and soy, but it does contain eggs. Chick-fil-A uses peanut oil in their fryer. According to Samantha, a Chick-fil-a employee:
The fryers used for chicken are only used for chicken meaning that the fries and hashbrowns are cooked separately from dairy containing products.
But of course, check at the restaurant to ensure your location practices this and that the food is safe for your needs.
