The Minnesota Department of Health says two children under the age of one year have gotten sick from eating Krinos brand tahini sesame paste.

New-York based Krinos Foods voluntarily recalled the product on April 28 after the Michigan Department of Agriculture found two strains of salmonella during testing.

MDH has confirmed the infection in the two children matches those strains. The babies didn't require hospitalization and are recovering.

Consumers are advised to throw away the following Krinos products with UPC codes:

0-75013-28500-3 (1 lb. jar)

0-75013-28510-2 (2 lb. jar)

0-75013-04018-3 (40 lb. pail)

Expiration dates of the recalled products have these stamps on the lids:

"EXP JAN 01 – 2014" up to and including "EXP JUN 08 – 2014" and "EXP OCT 16 – 2014" up to and including" EXP MAR 15 – 2015."

The company will offer reimbursements in exchange for products lids.
