The following Passover alert is from the Koshequest.org on March 19, 2014.

The Star K states:
"Raw, whole or chopped nuts (i.e. almonds, walnuts etc.) that have no preservatives or other additives (BHT, BHA etc.) in corn oil are approved for Passover. If the label states that it is processed in a plant that processes Kitniyos or Chometz, then it requires a reliable Hashgacha for Passover. Raw nuts, however should not be purchased from a bin, only packaged.
Note: Many consider peanuts as Kitniyos, which are not permissible (to Ashkenazim and some Sephardim) on Pesach. Dry roasted and ground nuts DO require reliable Passover certification".

The following information on nuts is from the OU in response to a question regarding Kirkland raw nuts (4/2/2014) & all OU certified raw nuts (4/4/2014): "Raw nuts in their shell do not require Passover certification. Shelled nuts that list BHA or BHT (preservatives) in the ingredients require special Passover certification. They are sprayed on the nuts using corn derivatives (kitniyot).
The trace warning, shouldn’t affect its status.
Note: valid for Passover 2014 only"
