These Alqosh branded Sesame Oil products were known to be marketed, distributed and sold in the US state of Michigan although it is always possible these food products had wider distribution within the country. When in doubt, please contact the manufacturer for specific product information.

If you are concerned about distribution outside the United States, please contact the manufacturer for specific product information.

According to the FDA, the potential for Salmonella contamination was found after routine testing by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (“MDARD”) revealed the presence of Salmonella in some of the jars of the Sesame Oil. As a result of this reported defect, you should neither serve nor consume the recalled Alqosh branded Sesame Oil identified above.

==> For information about Salmonellosis (Salmonella poisoning), please consult the “Illnesses” tab on this site, located at the top of this page.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Alqosh bramded Sesame Oil, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the Sesame Oil to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat bacterial poisonings such as Salmonelosis.
