The product, which is made in Turkey, may have potential microbial (salmonella) contamination and “cause illness if consumed”.

“Consumers should not eat this product,” the Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) said.

“Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice and should return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund.”

Salmonella is caused by a bacteria commonly found in contaminated food or water and can cause symptoms such as fever, chills and abdominal pain.

Both the hulled and unhulled tahini 300g with best before dates of May 25, 2023, and August 22, 2023 have been recalled, as well as the best before date of August 1, 2028b for the hulled tahini.
