FSSAI Bans Import

FSSAI forbids import of tahini-sesame paste from US and NZ.

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has asked Indian importers not to import the tahini-sesame paste from the United States and New Zealand. This action was taken due to an alert about the outbreak of salmonellosis linked to tahini sesame paste from Turkey

Mr. Vinod Kotwal, Codex director, FSSAI, said, “Since sesame paste is also used in Indian cuisine and is being imported, we are sharing this information with all concerned. We have also asked Indian importers not to import the sesame paste till further notice.”

According to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “A salmonella outbreak linked to tahini sesame paste distributed by Krinos Foods, NewYork, has ended after sickening a total of 16 people and killing one of them. The recalled products have expiration dates ranging between January 1, 2014 and June 8, 2014 and between October 16, 2014 and March 15, 2015.”

The paste was collected from shipments arriving in the United States from Turkey in December 2012 for distribution by Krinos Foods LLC, Long Island, New York. Its trace back determined that it was a part of a consignment which arrived in the United States on October 12, 2012.
