Peanut free Treenuts
We've tested DS for everything I think (including pine nuts and brazil nuts--for which I don't know safe sources).
Here's what we do (you may want to do your own source confirmation):Almonds
--Blue Diamond (not the red diamond ones). Try the chili and lime! And the butter toffee. Yummmmmm. And natural ones to cook with. I can't find them slivered, so I just break them up into small pieces for cookies. They have a warning for other treenuts. There are two others--cashews and ?? Don't know if it's shared lines or just facility.Pecans
--Young Pecans. We buy them at Sam's. In fact, it's the only reason we keep a membership there. They are not labled PF, but for years we called and they don't make anything else. Once, a few years ago, someone from the boards called and they gave a cya answer. But we use them. IMMV. Note--they have three trees on their logo. So does Young Plantation Pecans, which are NOT safe. It's really confusing.

Bad one: http://www.youngplantations.com/
green logo with the word "plantation" in itNote: There is now a may contain warning on Young Pecans. I called them, and their practices have not changed. They do not process peanuts. They explained it to me, and I don't remember exactly what they said, but my sense was that it was we were not at at a real risk to our family. BUT--I cannot recommend them without qualification. Pistachios
--Get Crackin'/Wonderful Pistachios (same company). They only do pistachios and guaranteed the source several months ago. I can get them shelled and unshelled. I'm going to make some pistachio ice cream! www.wonderfulpistachios.comwww.getcrackin.comMacadamia
--Dole Plantation (this is a new discovery--called last week--DS has eaten his first batch of white chocolate chip and macadamia nut cookies and loves them!). Dole sends them from Hawaii to http://www.hawnnut.com
and they send them back. I called both places--no peanuts. Nothing but macs there.
(UNLIKE the Mauna Loa mac nuts--owned by Hershey. Those are on the same line as pn).Cashews
--Tierra Farms. The garam masala ones are simply amazing. Here they are: http://www.tierrafarm.com/about-us.aspxHazelnuts
--we eat Nutella.
Many different kinds of nuts: http://www.tierrafarm.com/about-us.aspx
They say their processing is PF. They don't talk about their sources.
I would want to know where they get their macadamia nuts. And their pine nuts. Most pine nuts consumed in the US come from China and Russa. I don't know where Tierra Farms pine nuts come from.
On the old boards I posted a link to pf tree nuts in my Duke thread in main. I have not used them yet and can't remember them now. But sometime I'll go over there and dig.
