Tahini Recalled for Salmonella Risk

A New York company is recalling its tahini paste because the product may be contaminated with Salmonella.

Krinos Foods, LLC of Long Island City issued a voluntary recall of its Krinos brans TAHINI ground sesame seeds Monday after the Michigan Department of Agriculture found Salmonella in a sample of the product collected at a retail store.

Product subject to the recall is sold in 1 lb. or 2 lb. glass jars. The 1 lb. jars can be identified by UPC 0-75013-28500-3 and the 2 lb. jar can be identified by UPC 0-75012-28510-2. Both sizes of jar are marked with an expiration date between EXP OCT 16 – 2014 and EXP MAR 15 – 2015. Expiration dates are stamped on the lid of the product.

The company reports that no illnesses have been connected to the recalled tahini, to its knowledge.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled product should discard it but keep the gold cap stamped with the expiration date and return it to the company. More information about returning the product is available here.
