Ciolo Foods Pesto and Midwest Northern Nut Recalled for Undeclared Nuts

Two products have been recalled for undeclared nuts; one for undeclared peanuts and tree nuts; the other for undeclared tree nuts. Peanuts and tree nuts are two of the major food allergens. No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported to date.

The first recall is from Ciolo Foods, for Ciolo Nut-Free Basil Pesto. The product contains undeclared pine nuts and walnuts. Anyone who is allergic to those ingredients could have a serious allergic reaction if they eat this product.

The pesto was distributed to limited stores in Colorado, Utah, and Kansas. The product is in a 7 ounce square clear container label as “Nut-Free Basil Pesto.” It has the lot number¬†BV431291 ink-coded on the side of the container and has a best by date of 5/9/18.

The second recall is from Midwest Northern Nut of Minneapolis. They are recalled some nuts roasted in their facility because they contain other types of undeclared nuts not on the label. These products may also contain peanuts.

These products were distributed nationwide. Consumers may have bought the products at the Midwest Northern Nut retail store in Minneapolis, Minnesota, or through their website. The products are in various package sizes. Lot codes include the numbers 002180 though 061180, with one additional digit at the end that indicates the batch number.

You can see the long list of recalled products, along with the UPC number, size, lot number, and undeclared allergens, at the FDA web site. These products include Cashews, Splits and Butts, Cashews, Jumbo Whole, Macadamia Nuts, Fancy Deluxe Nut Mix, and Heart Healthy Nut Mix, among others. The potential for cross-contamination was identified during an inspection by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.

If you purchased any of these products and cannot eat tree nuts and/or peanuts, throw them away. You can also take them back to the place of purchase for a refund.
