Tony’s Imports and Exports Warns Against AL-RABIH Tahineh for Salmonella

Tony’s Imports and Exports of California is warning consumers, food distributors, and food processors not to consume or sell certain containers of AL-RABIH Tahineh (sesame paste, or tahini) because they may be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria. One hundred and forty-one pails of the product were stolen from the company’s warehouse, where they were being held for destruction because of Salmonella contamination.

ImportantThe product was sold in a white plastic pail with a label that reads, “AL-RABIH Tahineh, 100% Sesame, net weight 40 lb. (18 kg)”. The Tahineh is a product of Lebanon. Above the label, the following information is typed: “Imported by Tony Khorozian, Tony’s Imports & Exports, Tel S.S.F. 650-872-6534, Fresno: 415 412- 1985 Best Before 2014.”

The theft occurred in June 2012 but was not discovered until an FDA official arrived to witness the destruction of the tainted product. If you have purchased this product, destroy it. If the product was used to make other foods, consider recalling it. Contact Tony’s Import and Exports if you have purchased the product or have been offered the Tahineh for purchase.
