A warning was released when the retailer noticed the items contained peanuts which were not mentioned in the ingredient list.
This affected both the Baresa Pesto Alla Genovese (Green) and Red variants.
The Food Standards Agency website said: “These products may contain peanuts making them a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to peanuts.”
Both products are 190 grams with best before dates up to and including October 2022.
Posting on Twitter, Lidl shared a further warning: “We’re recalling our Baresa Pesto 190g Alla Genovese (Green) and Red variants, with Best Before Dates up to and including 10/2022, as they may contain traces of undeclared peanuts.
“Do not eat it if you have a peanut allergy or intolerance.”
The retailer has provided point-of-sale notices to customers with all the information.
This notice was also shared in the Twitter post and explained what shoppers should do if they have the product.
The condiment can be returned to store if making an essential trip or refunded by contacting customer services.
The information noticed said: “If you have bought the above products, and have an allergy to peanuts, we advise you not to consume them.
“Instead, if you are already making an essential trip to a Lidl GB store you can return the item to the store for a full refund, with or without a receipt.
