The Minnesota Department of Agriculture is issuing a consumer advisory for products made by Dukarani Food Processing because they may be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum. The toxin produced by this bacteria can cause paralysis and death. An issue with two fish- and vegetable-based sauces were identified during a routine inspection. No illnesses have been reported to date.
MDA can’t verify that the sauces were processed properly, creating a potential botulism risk. In addition, a dry sesame seed and ground fish product (Benniseed) was made through an unapproved process and with an unapproved ingredient source.
The recalled products are 8 ounce glass jars of Pepper Sauce and Ketele Sauce, and plastic lidded cups of Benniseed. They were produced and sold by Dukarani Food Processing. These products were made and sold through Friday, February 10, 2017.
If you purchased these products, do not eat them, even if they do not look or smell spoiled. Discard them in a sealed container or take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund.
