Wendy's Chili: New Milk Allergen
Wendy’s has made a change to the cooking procedures for hamburgers that results in a new milk allergen disclosure for chili. This change applies to all restaurants in the US and Canada.
Background: Wendy’s hamburgers have always served as the meat base for chili. For quite some time, Wendy’s has included a “may contain” milk statement on its allergen information related to chili because hamburgers are cooked on the same grill as, and may come in contact with, ingredients containing milk such as cheese. The recent changes to cooking procedures for hamburgers introduces meat with some cheese directly into the chili. We encourage customers to visit https://www.wendys.com/nutrition-and-health and check the Food Allergens section. US customers can visit the Our Menu section and Canadian customers, can visit Our Canadian Menu section. Each menu item identifies allergens for customers to evaluate based on his/her needs.
