Outback Steakhouse Potential Contamination Issue

According to the Newsletterette by Connie Sarros* (Author of Gluten-free Cooking for Dummies)

Last month, I posted that Outback Steakhouse places a piece of wheat bread in their brown sugar to keep it fresh. I called four different Outbacks in my area and all four agreed that they do place a piece of bread in the bag of brown sugar. Since that time, I have learned that each Outback Steakhouse determines whether or not to add the bread; this decision is based on how quickly they use up the brown sugar and whether or not the bread is needed. It is possible that the Outback near you may not use the bread. It is best to ask the manager once you arrive at the restaurant or call ahead.

Thank you, Jenn, for posting this and helping to pass along the word about Outback. Outback food is great but in the past, I never knew to ask if their brown sugar was gluten-free -- I just assumed it was. Being informed and knowing what questions to ask is half the battle in eating out safely.

What do they use the brown sugar to make? Just desserts?
