Company Announcement

Whole Foods Market stores in the North Atlantic region are voluntarily recalling the retailer’s specialty made-in-house basil pesto and specialty made-in-house sundried tomato pesto because the products may contain undeclared milk and tree nuts (walnuts and pine nuts). People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to these allergens run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The products were available in individual clear plastic containers and on antipasti bars with sell-by dates from June 7, 2019 – June 26, 2019. The specialty basil pesto was sold by the pound and can be identified by the PLU code beginning with 255926, and the specialty sundried tomato pesto was sold by the pound and can be identified by the PLU code beginning with 256009. Both sell-by dates and PLU codes are printed on the product scale labels. All affected products have been removed from store shelves. One allergic reaction has been reported to date. The issue was discovered after a customer alerted the store.

The pesto products were sold between May 17, 2019 – June 4, 2019 at 41 Whole Foods Market stores in Connecticut (Whole Foods Market Bishops Corner, Whole Foods Market Glastonbury and Whole Foods Market West Hartford), Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.

Customers who purchased this product at Whole Foods Market can bring a valid receipt into stores for a full refund. Consumers with additional questions can call 1-844-936-8255 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. CST, Monday through Friday, or 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Saturday through Sunday.
