What cereals do you trust to be peanut free?

In Canada, I would consider Kelloggs safe. But I see you are in the USA so not sure what is safe there. Maybe you could do a search under "cereals" and see what comes up. I have heard that some Americans trust General Mills.

I live in the US and I trust General Mills and Quaker. If I see something new from these companies and the label looks okay I buy it and I don't call anymore on these brands. There are a few health food brands that we've always used without a problem, Erewhorn Crisy Brown Rice and for oatmeal Old Wessex, I did write snail mail to these companies and never got a response, but we've been eating them for 2 years now so I guess I don't worry.

Cascadian Farms has 2 cereals out that they say are pn/tn free and no chance of cross. I have called 5 times about just their cereals and have gotten the same answer every time. The granola and wheat flake cereal ( I forget the name )are safe. They list under the ingredient label the allergens that could be present or that are present. Of course, always check the lables and call just in case.
I also totally trust enjoylifefoods.com granola and Hodgson Mills hot cereals and I just ordered from a new company 2 cereals. The company is pn/tn free and has been in business for 21 years and never had a problem. I can;t recall the name at this minute but it was posted this week by me and under the title (something like) NewWorldamaranth.com

Walmart sells a brand of cereal called Malt-O-Meal. They make cereal in the big bags. I called on 9/15/03 & spoke with Sheri in CS. She told me there are no peanuts in the facility. She said there is one cereal that contains almonds, but it is made on a dedicated line in another part of the facility. I think it was Honey Nut Toasty O's.
I purchased a bag of Honey Buzzers (like Honeycombs) and Tootie Fruities (like Fruit Loops) for my son's preschool class, because they'll serve Fruit Loops & Honeycomb for snacks & after reading posts about Kellogg's here, I'm not comfortable with them.
Malt-O-Meal's number is 507-645-6681, if anyone else wants to call.

I now trust Malt-O-Meals for PA only- not for TNA though they use dedicated lins for the 4 almond containing products.

We apparently have a greater comfort zone than some, because we eat Kelloggs, and General Mills cereals. We read the labels, and make our decisions based on that.

according to my call to malt o meal a few days ago they use a single line for honey nut toasty o's which have ground almond, the apple cinnamon toasty o's which does not have almond in it's ingredients nor on a warning label, and golden puffs which also does not indicate almonds. Way beyond my comfort zone, unfortunately.

Be careful of several General Mills' cereals - Boo Berry, Count Chocula and Frankenberry. They contain peanut flour which is listed towards the bottom of the ingredient list. Our local Target stores are marketing them for Halloween.
I sent them an e-mail regarding this but they never responded

I just read the labels and go from there. I don't buy high-sugar cereals, and we have to avoid all that contain milk, so our choices are pretty slim.
We always get Cheerios, Rice Crispies and Crispex. Cin. Life is a treat. Sometimes we get Kix too.

Our staples used regularly without any issues are Rice Chex, Kix, Special K, Rice Krispies, regular Cheerios in yellow box, Trix and Fruit Loops. I add them very slowly and it's always a struggle the first time I give it to my PA daughter!
