Other Allergen Notes

  • The Batter at Long John Silvers is currently made without milk, but the Breading contains milk. They are used on different menu items.
  • Also, their allergen labeling says that their Fries contain milk, but there are no milk-based ingredients that we can see. We assume that all of their fried foods are cooked in the same fryer, but it is possible that the Battered items are cooked separately and the Fries are cooked in the Breaded fryer. Check at the location if potential allergen cross-contamination is a concern for you.
