Popular Hummus Brand Recalled for Contamination
30,000 cases of a popular brand of hummus dip have been recalled following the presence of Listeria contamination.
Sabra Dipping Co. LLC has pulled their Sabra Classic Hummus off the shelves of stores after Listeria monocytogenes were discovered in the product.
After routine inspections at a Kroger outlet in Michigan turned up the contamination risk, the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development informed the company and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Only certain lots of the Classic Hummus are being recalled, and no other Sabra products are affected. There are no reported cases of illnesses to date.
Sabra released a statement today reassuring fans:
To our valued customers,
Today we announced that we are voluntarily recalling approximately 30,000 cases of our Classic Hummus due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes that we were made aware of on April 7. This measure is limited to five SKUs of Classic Hummus sold nationwide with a best by date of May 11 or May 15. All other Sabra products are safe to eat.
To date, there have been no reports indicating that these products have caused any illness.
