Chick-fil-A Is Recalling One of Its Popular Dipping Sauces


Chick-fil-A has issued a recall of one of their most popular dipping sauces, and it’s bad news for those of us who hoard fast food condiments for home use.

On Thursday, the fast food chain issued a statement on its website urging customers to exercise caution with “previously ordered” helpings of their Polynesian dipping sauce. Chick-fil-A advises anyone who took home packets of the sauce between February 14–27, and is still keeping them on hand, to immediately discard the condiment.

Chick-fil-A explained that the batch of Polynesian dipping sauce given out during that period was packed with the chain’s Sriracha sauce, which is made with soy and wheat. Polynesian sauce is not, which raised allergen concerns amongst consumers. The recall affects locations in 27 states.

Notably, bottles of Chick-fil-A Polynesian dipping sauce sold for retail were not included in the recall. Only the single-serve packets given out at restaurants were affected.

It’s unclear how many customers, if any, were impacted by consuming the sauce. Chick-fil-A did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Men’s Journal. Those who think they might be affected by the bad batch are urged to contact Chick-fil-A CARES at 1-866-232-2040.

The Polynesian dipping sauce is one of Chick-fil-A’s signature sauces. It’s actually celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, having been added to the chain’s menu in 1984 along with barbecue and honey mustard sauce to accompany chicken nuggets.
