I worked at the Downers Grove Panera store in Illinois. If you could see the conditions of the baking area it is absolutely disgusting.
The bakers do not wear gloves, they do not wear hats, they sweat over the food, sneeze on it. Knowing what goes on there, I could never eat the food. Items are premade then warmed up to seem fresh. Cookies and pastries are NOT FRESHLY MADE DAILY.
Also the all natural ingredients they say they use is not true.
The icings DO have dyes in them and everything comes pre-packaged. Nothing natural about their foods at all.
