Lidl Baresa Pesto
A warning was issued as the products contain peanuts not mentioned on the label.
Both the Baresa Pesto Alla Genovese (Green) and Red variants are affected.
Posting on Twitter, Lidl shared a warning: “We’re recalling our Baresa Pesto 190g Alla Genovese (Green) and Red variants, with Best Before Dates up to and including 10/2022, as they may contain traces of undeclared peanuts.
“Do not eat it if you have a peanut allergy or intolerance.”
Anyone who has bought the pesto with the best before date up to October 2022 should return the item to the store.
The food item may contain the bacteria Clostridium botulinum which can cause food poisoning.
The tubes have been stocked in Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons.
All flavours of 100 gram tubes are recalled with best before dates between October 30, 2020 and December 10, 2020.
All 150 gram packs should also be returned if they have best before dates between December 25, 2020 and January 28, 2021.
