Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Tahini Imported from Israel: FDA

A multistate salmonella outbreak has been linked to tahini imported from Israeli manufacturer Achdut Ltd., the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.

The company has recalled all of its brands of tahini products that were made from April 7, 2018, to May 21, 2018, have expiration dates of April 7, 2020, to May 21, 2020, and have product lot codes ranging from 18-097 to 18-141.

Consumers with the recalled Achva, Achdut, Soom, S&F, Pepperwood, and Baron's brand tahini should throw it away or return it to the store for a refund, the FDA said Tuesday.

So far, there have been five confirmed cases of illness in the outbreak.
