article imageSabra recalls 30,000 cases of hummus over Listeria fears

By Karen Graham     Apr 9, 2015 in Food
In the second recall of a food product this week, Virginia-based Sabra Dipping Co. LLC is voluntarily recalling 30,000 cases of its Classic Hummus over possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) learned of the possible contamination of the Sabra products after routine inspections found Listeria in several Sabra Classic Hummus containers collected on March 30 at a Port Huron Kroger outlet, according to a spokeswoman for the MDARD.
It took several days for the prepackaged products to go through testing, and as soon as the results came back, MDARD notified inspectors in Virginia and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The USDA is working with Sabra. At this time, only five stock unit numbers are involved.
The recalled Sabra products include:
Sabra Classic Hummus in 10-ounce sizes with UPC/SKU 040822011143 / 300067
Sabra Classic Hummus in 30-ounce sizes with UPC/SKU 040822014687 / 300074
Sabra Classic Hummus without Garnish in 32 ounce sizes with UPC/SKU 040822342049 / 301216
Sabra Classic Hummus in 17-ounce six-packs with UPC/SKU 040822017497 / 301290
Hummus Dual Pack Classic/Garlic 23.5 ounce with UPC/SKU 040822342209 / 301283
In a press release dated April 8, 2015, Sabra told consumers no other products are involved in the recall. They also advised consumers who have purchased any of these products to dispose of or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with any questions may call toll free 1-888-957-2272, Monday – Friday 9 s.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central Time.
In healthy adults, Listeria infection can cause fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. The symptoms are usually short-term. But in children, the elderly and those people with compromised immune systems, infection from Listeria can often be severe and even fatal.
