    Can we research to see if any of the above peanut butter was in the uncrustables that are available to the kids in the Auburn school district? My daughter had one if these and later that evening, my daughter became very sick. Vomiting and diarrhea. I thought maybe it was due to some Dino nuggets she had for dinner but I did find out she had an uncrustable from school during lunch. We never went to the doctor, we just cared for her symptoms at home and seemed to be better after 24 hours.
