Own brand pestos and frozen vegetables recalled over bacteria concerns

Dunnes Stores and Spar have announced a recall of their own brand pestos.

Some of the pestos being recalled by the FSAI.

They are taking the move as a precaution, due to the possible presence of Salmonella.

Consumers who bought affected batches should dispose of the product, or return it to the place of purchase.

The batches involved include the 130g Dunnes Stores Tomato Pesto expiry 30th of September and Basil Pesto expiry September 25 and Spar's 125g Basil Pesto and Red Pesto, both with expiry dates on September 25.
