If you’re not making your own hummus, chances are you’re buying Sabra. On Wednesday, the FDA announced the company, Sabra Dipping Co. LLC, is voluntarily recalling 30,000 cases of its classic hummus due to potential listeria contamination.
So far, no one has fallen ill; contaminated product was discovered during a routine sample check on March 30 in a retail outlet in Michigan, causing the company to recall five SKUs. Consumers are instructed to throw away affected product, or return it for a full refund.
The FDA reports that symptoms of listeria can include high fever, severe headache, nausea and diarrhea in healthy adults, but those with weakened immune systems, young children, and the elderly are at risk for more serious, even fatal, infections. It also can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.
If you’ve got a container of Classic Sabra in your refrigerator, check out the complete recall information on the FDA website.
