Well, it may depend on the type of nut. Do you mean tree nuts, peanuts, or both? If you want to avoid additives, then I'd suggest the varieties which are in the metal/paperboard cans. When they aren't flavored, they typically don't have all sorts of stuff added. For some reason the ones in clear containers always seem to have all sorts of junk added, even for ones which aren't supposedly flavored.

Here's a post I made with some eye-opening links to some nut products:

As for cross-contamination issues, that could be a tough one unless you buy them still in the shells. Processors seem to take liberties with nuts - probably because they won't spoil so quickly. Rodents and insects can get into them, and if the same facility processes anything else, cross-contamination is more likely.

For the absolute safest nuts, I think you'd be better off buying them still in the shell and shelling them yourself.

I buy Diamond Almonds, in the bag--whole and sliced, and have had no problem at all.

For roasted Almonds, I have verified by phone that Fisher Roasted, Salted Almonds are safe.

I get raw shelled nuts from the bins at my local health food store. They are stored in the kind of bin where you have to lift a plastic slot and they fall out from the bottom and hopefully into your plastic bag. No scoops and no hands can get into them. Unless you are over 8 ft tall. :P

I second that heartily. I have NEVER had a problem with CC with wegmans in about 3 years. The one item ( a barbeque sauce) that did give me problems I called about and they removed the gluten-free label then reformulated it with distilled vinegar from corn before they reintroduced it. They even put out gluten-free pickles, I love Wegmans. When my DS gets out of school he is insisting he be located in a state that has their stores.
