bjs-wholesale-club-logo-vectorBJ’s Wholesale Club Inc., is voluntarily issuing a recall of Cittero Mortadella and deli meats sold from Jan. 20 through Feb. 3 because of a possible pistachio allergen risk. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to pistachios run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. The Citterio Mortadella is being recalled because it may contain undeclared pistachios. Deli meats that may have come in contact with the same equipment as the Citterio Mortadella are also being recalled. These sliced deli meats are sold in individual service bags. The recalled deli meats were sold at BJ’s locations in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. No illnesses have been reported to date. The recall is being conducted because during the period from Jan. 20 through Feb. 3 BJ’s mistakenly received Citterio Mortadella containing pistachios. BJ’s deli labels did not list pistachios as an ingredient. Since the Mortadella with pistachios may have been sliced on equipment where other deli meats were sliced, BJ’s is conducting a voluntary recall of all deli meats purchased during the dates shown above.
