Possible listeria contamination prompts Sabra hummus recall

one

Sabra has announced that it is voluntarily recalling approximately 30,000 cases of its Classic Hummus due to possible contamination with listeria. The recall is limited to five SKUs of Classic Hummus sold nationwide. Currently no other Sabra product is affected by this recall.

There have been no reports indicating that anyone has become sick due to the recalled products.

The products being recalled are listed in the picture above and were distributed to retail outlets, including food service accounts and supermarkets, in the U.S. Consumers can find code and use by dates on the top of each package.

The potential for contamination was discovered when a routine, random sample collected at a retail location on March 30th, 2015 by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.

Consumers who have purchased any of these products are urged to dispose of or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with any questions may call toll free 1-888-957-2272, Monday – Friday 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central Time.

Officials say Listeria monocytogenes is an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
