Food Allergy Disclaimer
The University of Connecticut Department of Dining Services makes every attempt to identify ingredients that may cause allergic reactions for those with food allergies. Every effort is made to instruct our food production staff on the severity of food allergies. In addition, we label items with possible allergen-containing ingredients; however, there is always a risk of contamination. There is also a possibility that manufacturers of the commercial foods we use could change the formulation or substitute at any time, without notice. For items labeled gluten-friendly, the manufacturer ingredient labels have been reviewed and some do not contain a certified gluten-free seal. Customers concerned with food allergies need to be aware of this risk. Dining Services also operates its own bakery. Our bakery is not a nut-free bakery. We cannot guarantee the absence of cross-contamination with our baked goods. The University of Connecticut Department of Dining Services will not assume any liability for adverse reactions to foods consumed or items one may come in contact with while eating at any University establishments. Students with food allergies are encouraged to contact Dining Services at 860-486-3128 for additional information and/or support. You can also visit the dietary restrictions information page.
NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS – Because a food manufacturer may change the ingredients and nutritional content of its food products without our knowledge, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the nutritional values, allergens or ingredients of each food item. We label all stated allergens by the manufacturer – please keep in mind that some of these ingredients may have been made in facilities that contain other allergens. For more detailed information on a food product, please contact the unit manager or the food manufacturer directly.
