The Tahini Manufacturer, Achdut, Recalls Multiple Brands of "Tahini" including Pepperwood Organics Sesame Butter Because It May Be Contaminated with Salmonella, A Recall Focused To One Specific Expiration Date: 08-April-2020.

Achdut LTD. of Israel, is recalling its Tahini products of all packages and sizes produced on the following dates: April 7th to May 21st 2018 as well as the custom-made Pepperwood Organics sesame butter, because it may be contaminated with Salmonella, 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. 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.

The recalled "Tahini" was distributed internationally in retail stores and through mail orders.

Achdut is collaborating with health officials in connection with a positive finding of Salmonella in a US import sample of Achdut Tahini linked to a Salmonella outbreak that is currently being investigated by FDA and public health officials.
