Nutri-Foods, Inc., of Royal Oak, MI has recalled half-pound packages labelled as "Organic Sesame Seeds Natural - Unhulled", due to the risk that they might contain Salmonella. No illnesses have been reported.
The packages of seeds are labeled with a "packed on" date of December 28and were sold at Nutri-foods between December 15, 2007 and January 28, 2008.
The company has suspended production of this item, and consumers are being encouraged to return the product to Nutri-Foods for a full refund.
I find myself wondering whether there is a tie-in between this recall and prior recalls of sesame seeds in the US, Canada and the UK over the past several months.
