M & M\'s Plain ... check this out
A while ago Mars* started labeling the plain m&m's with the well known "may contain peanuts" label, I had been buying these for my kids. Then I see the label change and hit the roof! Sure I was happy they had it on there, but why didn't they before. I called Mars* and this is the explanation I got: They take the chocolate and make the plain m&m's, but if they have leftover chocolate from the peanut m&m's, they use that also. The chocolate in the peanut m&m's contains crushed-up peanuts. So basically she said, "everytime you eat a plain m&m's you have a 50% chance of eating ones with the "crushed peanut chocolate, and you would be taking a risk"...Think about all the people out there who don't realize the dangers of eating "PLAIN" m&ms and that they could give them to our kids thinking they were fine.
