Salmonella may cause serious or even fatal illness. While most healthy individuals often

experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain, the very young, the very old,

and those with a compromised immune system may suffer more serious illness. Complications

may occur if the infection moves from the gastrointestinal tract and into the bloodstream and

other parts of the body resulting in arterial infections, endocarditis, and reactive arthritis

The recall was initiated after a Salmonella outbreak was linked to Achdut Tahini products.

Affected Tahini products were sold under the brand names Achdut, Baron’s, S&F, Pepperwood, Soom, and Achva distributed internationally in retail stores and through mail orders.  See table below for specific product information.
