article imageSabra Hummus recall alert — U.S. and Canada over Listeria

By Karen Graham     Nov 19, 2016 in Food
Colonial Heights, Virginia-based Sabra Dipping Company, LLC has issued a voluntary recall of certain hummus products made prior to November 8, 2016, due to concerns over contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.
The Listeria monocytogenes was found at the manufacturing facility but was not identified in any of the products tested. The products under the recall were shipped to retail outlets, including food service accounts and supermarkets, across the U.S. and in Canada.
The FDA reminds consumers that L. monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
Healthy individuals may suffer may suffer short-term symptoms, such as high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Listeria can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women. Sabra is issuing this recall out of an abundance of caution.

Sabra Dipping Co., LLC issued a press release Saturday evening that includes a full list of the recalled products. Consumers with any product with a “Best Before” date up through January 23, 2017, are urged to discard it. Consumers can find the UPC code and “Best Before” date on the lid of each package.
