Krinos recalls Tahini sesame paste due to salmonella risk

Long Island City, New York company, Krinos Foods, LLC, announced a voluntary recall of  its TAHINI sesame paste after  the Michigan Department of Agriculture detected Salmonella during routine testing on a sample of the product in a retail store.

The affected product comes in 1 LB and 2 LB glass jars. The UPC code of the 1 LB jar is 0-75013-28500-3 and the 2 LB jar is 0-75013-28510-2. The recalled lots have a code stamped on the lid between “EXP OCT 16 – 2014” up to and including “EXP MAR 15 – 2015”.

According to the company,  no illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this recall.

Salmonella is an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Children are especially susceptible because they frequently put their fingers into their mouths and because their immune systems are still developing.

In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled product are urged to discard the product and return the gold cap stamped with the dates EXP OCT 16 – 2014” up to and including “EXP MAR 15 – 2015 and proof of purchase for a full refund to:

Krinos Foods LLC
4700 Northern Blvd.
Long Island City, NY 11101

If consumers do not have a proof of purchase, Krinos will reimburse them $8.00 per jar plus $.50 for postage.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at (718) 729-9000 between 8:30am and 4:30pm EST.
