I just called POST to find out about a cereal that my son with PB allergy has been eating. They said Honeycomb is made on the same line as nuts, and they couldn't tell me about any other cereal that was on dedicated line. So I guess I won't be taking any chances on POST cereals. Called Kellogg's and they said at the top of the cereal boxes is a code of three letters. If the first two letters are KL, KS or KB, those products are made in a plant with absolutely no nut products.
Nice to know.
Anyone know about other manufacturers like General Foods, etc.? as I don't have any boxes around to get the phone numbers.

I recently called about Cheerios made by General Mills. My PA daghter loves them and I was concerned as they now make the Honey Nut version. The customer service rep assured me they were made in entirely different plants... that's a relief. I think General Mills is pretty responsible in labling. To contact them call: 1/800/328-1144
The more people contact these companies the more our voice is heard. Good luck.
