Cibo Naturals Classic Basil Pesto Recall


Cibo Naturals has Issued a Nation Wide Allergy Alert due to undeclared Pine Nuts in its Classic Basil Pesto

Charlotte, NC – Cibo Naturals of Seattle, Washington, is recalling its 6 oz Classic Basil Pesto, because it may contain undeclared pine nuts. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to pine nuts (tree nuts) run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The product is sold in 6oz clear plastic containers, under the label Cibo Naturals Classic Basil Pesto. The lot numbers that may contain undeclared pine nuts are 34007344, 34007345, and 34007346. This lot number information is printed in black ink on the bottom of the container.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product containing pine nuts was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of pine nuts. Subsequent investigation indicated the problem resulted from a process deviation in the company’s mixing procedures.

Product quality and integrity are paramount to Harris Teeter. If you or a member of your household are allergic to nuts, do not consume this product, return the product to Harris Teeter for a Full Refund. Anyone concerned about an allergic reaction should contact their physician. Consumers with additional questions or concerns, please contact Cibo Naturals at 1-800-588-7782.
