Does a can of Sesame Tahini have to be refrigerated after opening?

We just opened a can of Sesame Tahini, and will not be finishing it for awhile. In the past, we've refrigerated it, but then it becomes impossible to mix it up. So we're wondering if we can keep this covered can at room temperature? We keep our peanut butter out of the refrigerator, and it seems similar to me (ground sesame seeds vs. ground peanuts). I do not want to get the family sick, so will suffer through the mixing difficulties that refrigeration causes if it is necessary. Thank you.
