Ziyad Brothers Importing is recalling tahini paste sold at Walmart and other retailers nationwide because state tests showed it was positive for Salmonella contamination.
The Cicero, IL, company said in its recall notice that it had not yet received the results of confirmation testing, but it initiated the recalls a precautionary move. The Salmonella was revealed as a result of a random sampling by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.
“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,” according to the recall notice posted by the Cicero, IL, company.
“Retailers that may have further distributed the recalled lot codes should share this notice with their customers. Retailers or consumers with questions may contact Recall Coordinator Ray Hanania at 708-298-3818.”
