DH and I went to McDonalds yesterday and left a little surprised!
We wanted to order a choc milkshake and just to be safe asked re cross contam with nuts. The order taker did not know, so asked her Manager who told us that the chocolate syrup used may contain traces of nuts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the first I have heard of such a thing..................And I cannot find anything on McDonalds website that confirms this.
Does anyone out there know whether this is true????????????
I am going to email customer service............

I have never heard of this. I would follow up, and keep in mind that people sometimes think they know what they are talking about with regards to allergies and allergens and products when they don't.

See the post about the waitress who said the "granola" oil didn't contain nuts in the "Chili's is awesome" thread. The waitress really meant canola oil...

Check out page 12 of 13 in the following link -- it lists all of McDonalds ingredients. I didn't see any reference to nuts or peanuts in the dairy mix or the chocolate syrup. I agree with Karen's comments - sometimes people think they're being helpful but don't realize that they're creating more of an issue by commenting without really knowing all of the facts...
