A new study shows more people are allergic to sesame than previously thought.
According to researchers from the Northwestern University, more than a million Americans are believed to have a sesame allergy and a majority reported having at least one other food allergy.
Experts say sesame can be hard to avoid because it's in a lot of foods as hidden ingredients.
Sesame labeling on food packaging is currently not required by the law, but the FDA is considering changing that.
