Waitrose recalls Waitrose & Partners “Green Pesto with Basil”

The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) advises the public that Waitrose is recalling Waitrose & Partners Green Pesto with Basil due to potential presence of Salmonella, which may lead to illness if consumed. The announcement was made by the U.K. Food Standards Agency.

The recalled product has been packaged as “Green Pesto with Basil – 145g” and produced by Waitrose.

DEH Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) have contacted all local wholesalers and supermarkets to ensure that they do not offer the affected products for sale to the public.

DEH urges members of the public, to refrain from using the affected product and properly dispose of them or return any unopened packages to the place of purchase.

also encourages those who feel they have become ill from the consumption of any of these items, to contact their medical provider immediately.

Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Most people recover without treatment. In some persons, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact their health care provider.
