Brodt Zenatti Holding LLC recently recalled all of its
tahini products because they are potentially contaminated with salmonella
. The company, based in Jupiter, Florida, distributed the tahini under the brand names Karawan and SoCo. The potentially contaminated tahini products were imported from Palestine and distributed directly to New York and Texas. It is now known that those distributors then shipped the tahini products that may be contaminated with salmonella to Massachusetts and Virginia.
Four people have become ill from consuming the tahini and one person has been hospitalized because of the severity of their salmonella-related symptoms. Recalled Karawan and SoCo brand tahini was sold in bulk and in retail sizes: 450g jars (15.87 ounces), 17kg buckets (599.6 ounces), and 3kg buckets (105.8 ounces).
