*Update* June 13, 2019

Brody Zenatti Holdings, LLC expanded their recall to include 106-ounce (3-kg) buckets of Karawan Tahini.

Karawan brand Tahini (retail and bulk) has been linked to a multistate Salmonella outbreak in New York, Texas, and Massachusetts, where four people have been reported sick and one of them has been hospitalized, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) notice. This triggered a voluntarily recall of the product by Broddzenatti Holding LLC of Jupiter, Florida, the importer and distributor in the US of the product.

According to the recall notice, consumers who have purchased Karawan brand tahini are urged to destroy it or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. The following information helps to identify the product:

  • Name of product: Tahini
  • Brand name: Karawan Tahini
  • Unit size: 16-ounce plastic retail jars and 39-pound plastic bulk buckets
  • Storage conditions: No refrigeration storage needed.
  • Expiration Date (s): Two years from the production. The expiration date is located on the lid of the containers.

This tahini was sold in bulk to retailers and restaurants and was also available to consumers at retail locations and online. It may have also been used in other food products sold to consumers. FDA advises consumers to be aware that this product has a shelf life of two years and should check their homes for tahini with either label.
