Delhaize, in consultation with the Federal Agency for Food Safety (FASFC), has decided to recall its 190-gramme Pesto Rosso (Red Pesto) due to the possible presence of diethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP).
The supermarket chain announced this in a press release on Monday.
DEHP is a phthalate, a substance that increases the flexibility of plastics. Delhaize has asked its customers not to consume Red Pesto and to return it to the store, where they will be refunded.
The Red Pesto was sold between 19 May and 10 June.
Delhaize says it has removed all affected products from its shelves and has tightened controls on the product and the supplier.
The supermarket chain also says other products in the same range are not affected and can be consumed safely.
