Tahini sold in Canada recalled over possible Salmonella contamination – Food Safety News

Breaking news for everyone's consumption
I-D Foods Corporation is recalling Al’Fez brand Natural Tahini from the marketplace because of possible Salmonella contamination.
According to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), the recalled product was distributed nationally and online in Canada.
About Salmonella infections
Anyone who has consumed any of the recalled product and developed symptoms of Salmonella infection should seek medical attention. Sick people should tell their doctors about the possible exposure to Salmonella bacteria because special tests are necessary to diagnose salmonellosis. Salmonella infection symptoms can mimic other illnesses, frequently leading to misdiagnosis.
Symptoms of Salmonella infection can include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating contaminated food. Otherwise, healthy adults are usually sick for four to seven days. In some cases, however, diarrhea may be so severe that patients require hospitalization.
Older adults, children, pregnant women, and people with weakened immune systems, such as cancer patients, are more likely to develop a severe illness and serious, sometimes life-threatening conditions.
Some people get infected without getting sick or showing any symptoms. However, they may still spread the infections to others. 
Recalled product:
Al’Fez – Natural Tahini
As of the posting of this recall, there have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of this product.
Recalled products should not be consumed, used, sold, served or distributed.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products.
The CFIA is verifying that industry is removing recalled products from the marketplace.
