We provide ingredient statements and notate the top 9 allergens on menus and signage. The top 8 allergens include: Milk, Eggs, Fish, Shellfish, Tree Nuts, Peanuts, Wheat, Soybeans, and Sesame. 

All Mason Dining staff received training on handling food allergies and taking precautions to reduce the risk of cross contact. All managers, chefs, and supervisors are Allertrain certified. 

We currently have an allergen-free station at both Southside and Ike's dining halls. This station offers hot entrees and side dishes for guests with food allergies and other dietary intolerances. 

A pantry, located in both Ike's and Southside dining halls, includes gluten free and nut free staples, in addition to milk alternatives.
