Plain M&M's are supposedly nut free, but they contain the warning 'may contain peanuts'. It's not worth the risk.

I agree it's not worth the risk. There have been other parents who have posted (years ago) that had children who DID have reactions from plain m&m's. We do not allow anything made in a facility because the residue can get into the air ducts and cross contaminate other areas. Hope that helps.

Our allergist told us that they melt the defective peanut m&m's, remove the nuts, and use the chocolate that was melted off to make more m&m's both plain and peanut. So there is a pretty good chance of cross contamination if the information she gave us is accurate.

Read an article about a child who died from her peanut allergy after eating plain M&M's.
