Sesame oil packed in August 2020 is now under recall because of positive Salmonella test results. The product labels do not have expiration dates.
Mediterranean Food Inc. of Warren, MI, is recalling its 2-pound plastic jars of “Alqosh Sesame Oil” after receiving notice of the problem found during routine testing by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD). The department collected the test sample from one of the retailers that received the implicated sesame oil.
The recalled sesame oil was distributed in Michigan retail stores and distributors via the company’s staff, according to a recall notice from Mediterranean Food Inc. that was posted by the Food and Drug Administration.
“The Product was distributed in the period from 11/06/2020 to 12/10/2020,” according to the company notice. “The product comes in a 2Lb, clear plastic jar marked with lot # 16082020 on the side of the jar and with a Production date of 08/16/2020 stamped on the side.
“Production of the product has been suspended while FDA and the company continue their investigation as to the source of the problem.”
As of the posting of the recall notice no confirmed illnesses had been reported in relation to the recalled product.
Consumers who have purchased Alqosh Sesame Oil “Tahin” 2Lb plastic jar with lot # 16082020 should not consume the product and are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 586-777-3460.
