Category 2 Food Alert for Information: A batch of Biona Organic Tahini White has been recalled due to the presence of the unauthorised pesticide ethylene oxide.
The above batch of Biona Organic Tahini White has been recalled due to the presence of the unauthorised pesticide ethylene oxide in the sesame seeds that were used in the product.
