Transportation officials have canceled a complete weekend closure of the eastbound 91 Freeway near Corona, which was scheduled for Friday night, Aug. 26, through early Monday, Aug. 29.


“A supplier notified us they had unintentionally added an undeclared dairy allergen in the recipe for our Grilled Filets and Grilled Nuggets,” Chick-fil-A said in a statement, adding that when they learned about the contamination, “we took immediate steps to notify guests of this temporary issue.”

A statement warning customers to the situation has been placed to the chicken chain's nutrition and allergens page, as has a note regarding the dairy allergen on the Grilled Nuggets page. The incident has had an impact on restaurants around the Chick-fil-A chain.

“We are actively working with the supplier so this doesn’t happen again and to ensure the allergen is removed,” Chick-fil-A said, “We understand and take seriously the trust our guests place in us to make sure their food is how they expect it, and we apologize for this situation. Our priority is that our impacted guests can enjoy these products again soon.”


While the presence of dairy may be unimportant to some customers, it can be deadly to people who are allergic to it.

On Tuesday, Kids With Food Allergies, a division of the charity Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, announced the change on its Facebook page. Commenters on the Facebook page were outraged by the announcement, claiming that it further restricted food alternatives for those with allergies.

The CDC predicts that over 8% of US children have a food allergy, while a 2019 study discovered that more than 10% of American adults have at least one food allergy.
