My wife, with Celiacs, just had a similar experience. Last night she became ill, and we narrowed down the possible causes to peanut butter M&Ms or salad dressing. Tonight she is again sick, and the only outlier she ate were peanut butter M&Ms. (She has never had problems with regular M&Ms.) She has no history of reacting to peanut butter and related products before. Could Mars be experience a cross-contamination problem??

Here's a recent M&Ms thread with some helpful info. http://www.celiac.co...opic/90669-mms/
Also, make sure you are checking the label for "May contain wheat".

I see no one has posted here in a while, but I have a severe gluten sensitivity, had a bag of these M&M's Peanut Butter today and got serious intestinal upset within 3 hours. Just letting everyone know there is still a problem with these. 4 hours later still not doing well....

Same here, but happened with a couple hours today. Wish I would have found this thread earlier -- but lesson learned. Hate when it happens the hard way, though.

Mars M&Ms clearly marks packaging with allergy information and a "may contain" statement.

 

Peanut Butter M&Ms do not contain gluten.  If they continue to make you sick you should not eat them.

 

All the best.
