About Sesame Allergies: For some people, sesame and sesame products are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention and treatment. Check ingredients labels carefully: sesame-based ingredients may also be listed as any of the following: benne, benne seed and benniseed; gingelly and gingelly oil; sesamol and sesamolina; sesamum indicum; sim sim; and til.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to sesame or sesame ingredients within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death. If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call-9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.
