CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA (May 4, 2023) – Bakkavor USA is issuing a voluntary recall of Trader Joe’s Genova Pesto (SKU# 15759) because the product may contain undeclared milk and walnuts. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk or walnuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.
The impacted product has UPC 0015 7353 on the side label and Use By date of 05/27/2023 with a time stamp between 06:28 – 07:07 printed on the bottom of the tub, was distributed to Trader Joe’s stores between 4/28/2023 and 4/30/2023 in Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, and Washington.

No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported to date, and all potentially impacted product has been removed from sale. An investigation into the root cause of this error is ongoing.
