All McDonald’s menu products may come in contact with nuts

McDonald’s Canada has started serving its first product containing peanuts or tree nuts

TORONTO — McDonald’s Canada has started serving its first product containing peanuts or tree nuts that do not come in an individual package, causing concerns for customers with severe nut allergies.

McDonald’s says in a statement on its website that its new Skor McFlurry contains choppped almonds in the pieces of chocolate bar used to make the treat.

The company says this means all of its other products may contain or come in contact with peanuts, tree nuts or other allergens.

McDonald’s previously only served individually packaged peanuts and tree nuts.

Some people took to Twitter to criticize the company for the move, saying people with severe allergies to such nuts would no longer be able to eat at the restaurants.

McDonald’s said it wanted to make customers with such allergies aware of the change so they can make an informed decision about whether its Canadian restaurants are still suitable environments for them.
