Are M&M's safe??? I can't find anything on the packaging to suggest they're not....am I missing something. I'm talking just plain ones....I don't have allergies to peanuts! Thanks

In the US m&ms are gluten free with the exception of the crunchy ones.

I have just had a classic DH (Dermatitis Herpataformis) autoimmune gluten reaction to M&M's over the last 2 nights, extreme bilateral subcutaneous itching on the outsides of my ankles. I religiously avoid gluten, and everyone says that M&M's are gluten-free, but they contain dextrin. Dextrin in the U.S. is generally corn-based and gluten-free, but if the pet food debacle has taught us anything it is that today's raw ingredient supply chains are murky, international, and beyond the FDA's ability to successfully monitor. If the Purchasing Dept. at Master Foods buys the dextrin from a supplier who buys it from a supplier who gets it from Asia to save a penny, the dextrin may not always be corn-based and gluten-free. My body does not lie. The M&M's I ate had gluten, causing the IgA antibodies to rush to the spots under my skin to fight the "invader", which caused the horrible itching. Buyer beware!
