The Ministry of Health publishes the initial findings found during today's inspection at the Zabar plant.
This morning (Wednesday) a team of the food service on behalf of the ministry arrived at the "Zabar" factory in Kiryat Gat, in order to carry out an inspection after the recall made by the company due to salmonella in the products.
The control continued until the evening hours.
According to the initial findings, no substantial deviations were found in the audit.
The inspection by the Ministry of Health revealed that the factory carries out regular controls for salmonella, the factory uses raw materials only after proper sampling and in the last month over 200 tests were performed for the presence of salmonella.

According to officials at the factory, it seems that tahini, which is the raw material in the production process, is highly suspected of the presence of salmonella, however, according to the test done today by the food service of the Ministry of Health, no laboratory proof of this was found.
Therefore, it is not possible to determine, as of this stage, what the source of the infection is.
The ministry directed the plant to examine additional sources of contamination, and to submit a detailed and reasoned further investigation to the Ministry of Health.
