The public is being made aware to not consume several pesto products of Sacla brand if they are allergic to peanuts. This is because some of the products may contain peanuts, something which is undeclared on the label.

This warning came out in a press release by the Environmental Health Directorate within the Superintendence of Public Health. The warning goes on to say that the involved company is presently affixing stickers on the involved products so as to inform consumers on the possible presence of peanuts, but since the products have reached consumers, the Health Inspectorate is obliged to inform consumers of this warning.

The products in question are: Tomato Pesto, Chargrilled Aubergine Pesto, Classic Basil Pesto, Reduced fat Basil Pesto, Reduced Fat Tomato Pesto, Sun-dried Tomato Pesto, Truffle Pesto, Vegan Basil Pesto and ‘Nduja Pesto.
