Burger King Changes Cooking Procedure for French Fries, No Longer Gluten-Free (effective Aug. 2015)

According to a Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) notice posted today (8.3.15), Burger King is changing their cooking procedures for their FRENCH FRIES, making them unsafe for the celiac, gluten sensitive and wheat allergy community. The procedures are in practice as of August 3, 2015.

“Burger King Corporation (BKC) is committed to providing accurate nutrition and allergen information for our guests so that they are able to meet their individual needs. As part of this commitment, our process includes timely dissemination of accurate information.

Accordingly, we are informing the food allergen community about the change in cooking procedure for our French Fries. Starting on August 3rd 2015, French Fries will no longer be cooked in a separate fryer. They will be cooked in the same fryer as Hash Browns that contain wheat flour, resulting in the likely risk of cross-contact with a known allergen for the French fries. Therefore, from now on, French Fries may contain wheat.” Read more HERE
