The Anaphylaxis Campaign has received and has been asked to share the following update from Sacla regarding its recent pesto recall.

Update from Sacla:

Customer health and safety is always our number one priority. In December, when we became aware that cashew nuts used in some of our pesto recipes, sent to us by an external supplier, may contain traces of peanuts, we urgently recalled every batch of every implicated pesto sauce.

We launched a full and in-depth investigation into the incident, to understand how these cashew nut supplies could have been contaminated and how we can be sure that it can never happen again.

While this investigation continues, we are taking immediate steps to update the labels of the implicated products, and make it clear that they are currently not suitable for nut and peanut allergy sufferers.  You will see Sacla’ Pesto start to return to the shelves with clear new labelling within the next week. 

We apologise again for any distress and inconvenience caused by this incident.

If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact us on 01494 687900 or help@sacla.co.uk.
