“Food safety and quality are our top priorities, and we take great care in adhering to stringent food safety procedures. Therefore, when a supplier notified us they had unintentionally added an undeclared dairy allergen in the recipe for our Grilled Filets and Grilled Nuggets, we took immediate steps to notify guests of this temporary issue. We are actively working with the supplier so this doesn’t happen again and to ensure the allergen is removed. We understand and take seriously the trust our Guests place in us to make sure their food is how they expect it, and we apologize for this situation.
