I have created these lists which I update as I learn about more companies:
No Peanuts List List of companies whose products are safe for those with a peanut allergy. I have found that there are no peanuts present in their products or facilities.
Some Products OK* List: List of companies where only some of their products are made in a peanut free facility and contain no peanuts.
Not OK-Peanuts in Facility! List: List of companies whose products are produced in a facility that contains peanuts; they are not safe due to the risk of cross contamination. Also on this list are companies that have not responded to my inquiry, or have provided me with a inadequate answer.
All Brands List A list of all the companies I have looked into.
Please keep in mind that manufacturing practices & ingredients can and do change.
Always read each product's ingredient list before trying any of the items on these lists.

FDA regulations only require that food companies declare all 8 major US food allergens: peanuts, soybeans, milk, eggs, fish, crustaceans, tree nuts, and wheat, on their packaging if one of those items is present in the ingredients. The FDA does NOT require companies to list if a food or product is produced in a facility that also processes peanuts. This does not make any sense because peanuts can still be present in a product due to cross contamination at the production facility; not seeing peanuts in the ingredient list does not rule out if peanuts are in a product or food.
For the brands on my lists I looked into if their products are both peanut free and are made in a peanut free facility so that there is no risk of cross contamination from peanuts. For some brands I was able to find a clear answer to my question on their website, and for others I reached out through email, or by calling the company directly. Each time I asked the same question: 'Hi, I am extremely allergic to peanuts and am wondering if any of your products contain peanuts, or are processed in a facility with peanuts? Due to my allergy to peanuts I cannot consume or use any product or food where peanuts are present in the product or food or the processing facility.' My findings I have shared on my lists.
I am an adult with a serious peanut allergy, read about me or contact me here.
Over the years have developed rules that I use to keep myself safe, visit my Blog to read more.
