TAHINI Sesame Paste has been recalled by the Long Island City, New York-based Krinos Foods because of the potential for the paste to be contaminated by Salmonella. This is actually an expansion from a previous recall. It was discovered that additional expiration dates ranging between January 1 and June 8 of 2014 could be affected by the issue. One and two pound jars and 40 pound pails sold around the country are being recalled. The Department of Agriculture of Michigan discovered the contamination during sample testing, although thankfully, no instances of a Salmonella-based illness have been reported in conjunction with these products at this time. Owners should send proof of purchase to the company to get a refund.
