I wrote to a local burger restaurant to see what allergens were in their food or if my son could even eat anything there. I looked on the website and didn't see anything about the allergens in the food so I wrote to them, this is their response, my comments are in red:
Hello Jeannette, (my name is spelled wrong)
Please accept my apology for the delayed response. (It took over a week for a response, glad I wasn't going to day I wrote)
At this time, we do not have a formal nutrition/ingredient guide available on our menu items; however, we are in the process of developing these guides; however, the beef, buffalo and ostrich patties and hotdogs are gluten free (ok, what about dairy, eggs or nuts?) along with the spice used on the burgers and fries.
The items produced in our bakery may contain any or all of the following ingredients: peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, gluten, eggs and dairy. All these items (cookies, buns, brownies, Rice Krispies treats, etc.) are produced in an environment where peanuts are present and there may be a danger of cross contamination. Most (most? How do I know about the one I am going to visit?) of our restaurants are frying with partially hydrogenated soybean oil.
We do recognize the importance and need for nutritional information on our menu items and we are hopeful that we will be able to provide our guests with this information in the near future. (Why can't companies have this information available on their website or even if asked, is it so hard to do??)
On behalf of Fuddruckers, Inc., we want to express our sincerest appreciation for your continued loyalty and patronage. (Well, I can't be loyal anymore because I have no idea what to feed my child from there)
