Dr. Kracker brand.

Not sure how available this product will be for everyone, but our Whole Foods here in Massachusetts carries this line. They are peanut and nut-free as well as wheat free, but they do have sunflower and other seeds in a few of their products. We like their cinnamon graham-type of crackers.

Here is the response I got from [email]george.eckrich@drkracker.com[/email]:

We are 100 percent peanut and tree nut free. These allergies are so serioius that we have no plans to ever introduce them into the bakery. regards, george

None of those crackers are wheat-free. Most contain wheat and the rest contain spelt, a form of wheat. Some also contain oats, which are so rife with cross-contamination, they cannot be considered wheat-free in North America.

It's good to know that they are nut free!
For those who are avoiding wheat, though, I think spelt is not recommended. It is an ancient form of wheat and shares many of the same proteins. Most people who are allergic to wheat will have a reaction to spelt.
They also contain sesame and sunflower seeds.

Sorry about the wheat-free thing. I have asked that this thread be deleted or that the title be changed to "PN/Nut-free Crackers (may contain seeds)".

glutano.com and glutino.com both have crackers and rusks that are pn/tn free as well as gluten free. There is also a new breadstick in 2 flavors that is yummy but could have cross with sesame if you are avoiding that allergen. They are actually tasty and as long as I don't have to make any more crackers I can deal with the rice flour. I have never had anyone even comment on a different taste. Some even look like ritz crackers. Although I just double checked this week I always advise everyone to check for themselves since some of their products are made in a different facility that could contain tree nuts.
