Every mcdonalds in america does NOT have gluten free fries. The fries have beef extract in them and contain malt.

IF you are VERY CLEAR that you have a severe allergy (I know celiacs is not an allergy-but that’s what makes sense to most people) they can change gloves, and prepare a safe burger with no bun for you. Please remember that McDonalds Fries are NOT GF! No matter how good they smell.

I have celiac but I don't recall ever getting sick on the fries here even tho they do have some in the oil or something. supposedly they tested but it was below 20ppm gluten.however 4 days ago I got sick. I had 2 large fries and a chicken bacon salad with grilled chicken and Newman's ranch dressing. one of these items made me pretty sick and I won't blame it on any one specific item. possibly the grilled chicken or even the dressing. I will update perhaps sometime in the future. I will test the fries alone again at some point and will see as I don't remember ever getting sick from the fries.

Future update: got sick from 2 large fries, tho I can't confirm 100% since I had wheat starch earlier in a candy I thought was gf. so for now avoid this chain, nothing is really safe for Celiac's. go to chick fil a instead.

First, I was pleasantly surprised that they have a separate fryer for French fries! I got the new BLT QP, with no bun. They brought it to our table on a plate with a lid, and gave me a fork. The BLT QP, is purportedly made fresh to order, and it definitely seemed fresh.

I was a little bit hesitant to order after my previous experience with a different restaurant that was supposedly gluten-free, but I thought I’d give my voice here because I do have some positive things I want to say about my experience ordering from McDonald’s through GrubHub with a need for a gluten-free diet. I was happy to discover through some research that many people state that the fries are indeed gluten-free, you do have to be careful because sometimes there are fryers that cross contaminate when it comes to gluten related products, so I was happy to hear that the large fried I had ordered did not make me sick. I was also happy to discover that although I try to avoid lactose, the McFlurry M&M is also supposedly gluten-free according to various sites on the web that you can research on! So it made me really happy to have that and not have as many issues with a Gluten as well. I also got a burger with the bread removed, and had everything else on it and eat it with a fork, and it was a little unorthodox, but I didn’t have my typical severe reaction to gluten like I have with other foods when eating having these three items. Although I will say that you do take a risk when it comes to the hamburger since it’s often that the burgers are produced in the same place that the bread is used and sometimes cross-contamination happens with gloves, but I was fortunate not to have that experience this time. So I just wanna put some positive experience out there for anyone else who might want to do some research on trying McDonald’s out for those that need a gluten-free diet and need some sort of takeout that can be found in this area!
