I am looking for a safe gluten free chocolate Halloween candy. I just got off the phone with a rep. at the Mars co. about their plain M&M's. I asked if there was a change of cross contamination from those stupid pretzel M&M's and she said that they are made in the same facility as the pretzel ones and on the same lines depending on which factory them come from. She said that they wash the lines between types but can not state that they are Gluten-Free.

Are Hershey's Kisses or plain chocolate bars Gluten-Free? What kind of chocolate is Gluten-Free?

Thanks for that link. I noticed that M&M's were on there. Since the company told me that they could be cross contaminated and the list says that they are safe, which is correct??

Both are correct. There is a risk of cross-contamination in every mainstream product, since no mainstream company tests all their products for gluten. Even if they did, contamination below a certain level can not be detected by any test. Consequently, no company can or will guarantee that cross-contamination is not possible.

M&Ms are as safe as any mainstream candy gets.
