kernels popcorn salt(canadian cheddar)
Chocolate syrup(like Nestle quick)
Thousand Island salad dressing
some block cheese,cheese strings etc..
Alot of Vachon cakes(half moons etc…)
I’m sure I am missing alot but here are a few for now.thanks for the info. I carry epi pens everywhere!
Wow, Arby’s is one of the worst offenders I have come across so far if you have a Yellow#5 allergy! It is in a number of their sandwich buns, so be careful! Here we go:
Double Cut Bun: Y5 is in this bun. Right now it is being used for the following sandwiches
Dijon Honey Mustard Dressing and Sandwich Sauce
Light Italian Dressing
Kraft Macaroni & Cheese
Outside-In Cinnamon Bites
Steakhouse Onion Rings
Amazingly their Yellow Mustard contains no Y5!
I only list items that I have at one point verified through reading the ingredients on the label of listed on their website’s ingredient lists. I am not God and therefore can not be responsible if you are stupid enough to believe that this is in anyway a comprehensive list. Use this as a guide, but DON’t assume anything. Ask, Ask, and Ask again to store or restaurant you are buying the items from. Call their customer service numbers. Restaurants and manufacturers introduce new products and change ingredients all the time. I cannot be held responsible for any mistakes, omissions, etc. You bear the sole responsibility, I merely try to provide a resource that you can question and use to help avoid Yellow #5 allergies.
If you have a Yellow #5 food allergy, Burger King has some interesting items that could contaminate just about any food item you order. This is the worst fast food restaurant I have come across so far for Y5. My biggest concerns here are:
PICKLES!! Yes, anything you order that has pickles will have Yellow 5 in it. Ask to hold the pickles.
Smoky Cheese Sauce: This appears to include the Cheesy Bacon BK Wrapper which is served at breakfast.
Also containing Yellow 5:
M&M’s for those shakes and deserts
Apparently, those golden arches you see contain some Yellow #5. If you have a Yellow #5 food allergy, McDonald’s has listed on the ingredient list the following foods/drinks containing Y5:
Mocha Coffee Frappe Base
McFlurry with M&M’s
According to Wendy’s own nutrition guide the following contain Yellow #5. Avoid the following if you have a Y5 allergy:
Honey Mustard Nugget Sauce
Minute Maid Lemonade
I have also heard their mayonnaise contained Yellow #5, however it is not listed as an ingredient.
