Canada's food watchdog warned consumers Friday not to eat MaraNatha Organic Raw and Roasted Sesame Tahini because they could be tainted with salmonella.
The recall applies to the following 340-gram jars:
- Organic Raw Sesame Tahini, UPC 0 51651 09327 9, with a best before date up to and including Oct. 2, 2007.
- Organic Roasted Sesame Tahini, UPC 0 51651 09328 6, with a best before date up to and including Oct. 2, 2007.
The products were distributed across the country. No associated illnesses have been reported.
Foods tainted with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled, but the bacteria can cause symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. In rare cases, the bacteria can kill people who are very young or elderly or who have weakened immune systems.
Every year, 6,000 to 12,000 cases of salmonella illness are reported across Canada.
