Ziyad Brothers Importing is recalling some of its Tahini Sesame Paste because of a possible Salmonella contamination.

The product was distributed nationwide and is sold in 8, 16, and 32 ounce and half gallon jars with lot codes and use by/expiration dates are printed on the white jar cap.
You can see a list of recalled lot numbers and UPC numbers on the Food Safety News website.      

No illnesses have been reported to-date in connection with the Ziyad Brand Tahini.

This potential problem was revealed as a result of a random sampling by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development. Although they have not received the final laboratory reports, Ziyad Brothers say it's taking the precaution of recalling products.

Consumers who have purchased Ziyad Brand Tahini with these lot codes should discontinue use and return it to the store of purchase for a full refund.
