The Sesame Shift
Did you know that the recommendation in the USA for sesame to be labeled as an allergenic ingredient, or potential inclusion, is shifting? As from January 2023, the US FDA are moving the declaration for sesame in foods as an allergen from a recommendation to a requirement. There have unfortunately been deaths linked to accidentally consuming undeclared sesame and although this is rare, the shift to a requirement this only be a good move. Protecting the public should always be our priority.
