It's the maltodextrin. I make their food taste great to most people, but there are some of us that get sick to the stomach, and or awful headaches ! My headaches last three days, and I knew of my sensitivity before I ate there. Chick-Fil-A is very up front about telling you it's literally in everything they offer. I started a Facebook Group -Sensitivity to Dextrin / Maltodextrin.
NO, it's FIGURATIVELY in everything they offer, in FACT it is in only 4 specifically listed menu items. the grilled chicken (also used in the chicken salad) and the vinagrette salad dressing - THAT IS ALL.

Stop lying on this forum.

I have been bedridden with nausea, diarrhea, fatigue and low grade fever for 3 days. I didn't eat for nearly 48 hours. Lying here with gf who got mildly ill, we just figured out the last thing we ate before getting ill. Chickfila.

I felt like my chicken sandwich was slimy at the time. And this was the first time I have eaten there in ten years. This is the only new thing we have eaten in forever. Forget the peanut oil or special seasonings. All signs are pointing to good oldfashioned salmonella.

well you need to think of what you did after that because everything at chic is on a timer. Its gets thrown away after so many minutes and even the cookies are thrown away. You two probable went to wal mart and touched everything didn't wash those nasty paws and ate wijth dirty hands. Yeah people are nasty and I don't know why you would blame a great restaurant that is clean. If you don't like it go to mc donalds and have a dry big mac that has been in the window for 3 hours.

I've worked at chick-fil-a for years, and all of our chicken is fresh. Maybe you're allergic to something in the breading or buns.

So I googled "chick fil a sick" and got here. My wife LOVES chick fil a, but literally every time ive eaten it I get stomach pain, gas, diarrhea etc. I stopped eating it but recently gave in to please her and now im sitting on the toilet for the eighth time today wondering why Im an idiot. I usually get a fried chcken sandwich and fries and every single time, from several different locations, i end up with some form of physical distress. My personal opinion is that they must use an oil with which my body is not familiar. I believe they use canola oil which is known to cause GI distress in some people. Try eating a grilled sandwich from chick fil a to avoid the trouble. I however will never eat there again.
Me too. I have IBS and am sensitive to dairy and high fructose corn syrup. But I can eat mcdonalds and Burger King once in a while with no problem. But a Chick Fil A sandwich kills me every time. Cramps, diarrhea, etc. Too bad because I love the sandwiches. I'm not crazy about them donating to hate groups, but I do love the sandwiches.

Maybe all the hate is getting in the food and making people sick.

Doesn't make me sick, I realized some time ago that I did not like their food. No problem. There are plenty people who will eat there regardless.

Maybe you should stop eating there. Are you trying to get up a law suit on them? Stop eating there before their food kills you.

I love chick fil a and think pretty much everything on the menu tastes good. Every time I eat a chicken sandwhich my stomach ends up hurting. It usually goes away after a few hours and a couple of trips to the john. Yes it isn't pleasant, but the food tastes too good to stay away.

It humors me the amount of times sexuality is brought into this. regardless of the sexuality. male female. married with kids divorced. many people are having this problem. perhaps you ought to look beyond your nose (People who can't see past sexuality) and realize that it's not due to that.

I myself have gone many times and every time I go I get sick the day after. actually quite sick (Stop right there, You can rest assured I am NOT a homosexual...) I just work close to one. and will often have high hopes that they've changed their food handling habits. however when I eat at one in another town it's not bad at all. but some of them I will get sick like this. I'm not sure what they're doing. but every employe I've talked to from one has told me they'd never eat at their own restaurant. not that, that's shocking in anyways. but when you ask of them to elaborate. you soon to understand and share their feelings. but often times people will ask me when I'm going out for lunch to grab them something from there. and I'll give it a try myself. and time after time I still get sick. So I'm not sure what it is, and I know that ours has gone under new management more times than I can count. but it's not getting any better.
