The Salmonella outbreak linked to Karawan and SoCo tahini has ended after sickening six people in three states, hospitalizing one of them. The outbreak was linked to imported products distributed in the U.S. by Brodt Zenatti Holding LLC of Jupiter, Florida which were recalled.
Six people, ranging in age from 8 to 32 years old reported illnesses from March 9, 2019, to May 2, 2019. Four of them were from New York, one was from Massachusetts and one was from Texas.
Tahini, seed and nut butter products are regularly linked to food poisoning outbreaks. These products can become contaminated with dangerous pathogens during production after the nuts or seeds are roasted. Our food poisoning lawyers recently filed an E. coli lawsuit stemming from the I.M. Healthy SoyNut Butter outbreak. Our client was a child who developed a nearly fatal case of hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a complication of E. coli infections.
