PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) – Whole Foods Market locations across the Northeast have issued a voluntary recall of several pesto products due to possible undeclared milk and tree nut contents.

The pesto products were available in individual clear plastic containers and on antipasti bars, sold between May 17 and June 4 at stores in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.
