Sabra Recalling Some ‘Classic Hummus’ Over Salmonella Concerns; Was Sold in NJ
Heads-up if you enjoy hummus -- Sabra Dipping Company is voluntarily recalling approximately 2,100 cases of Classic Hummus, including some sold in New Jersey, because it was potentially contaminated with Salmonella.
According to a post on the FDA's website, the possible contamination was, "discovered by a routine screen of a single tub by the FDA."
The recall is limited to, "1 SKU of 10 oz Classic Hummus produced on Friday, February 10, 2021 between the hours of 6:00 PM and 12:00 midnight with a “Best Before” date of April 26."
Officials say because the product is halfway through its shelf life, you probably won't find it in a supermarket -- but that means it could already be in your refrigerator.
The FDA is quick to point-out that no illnesses or consumer complaints have been reported so far.
The recalled product was sold in New Jersey and 15 other states.
If you have purchased the recalled hummus, you can return it to the store where it was purchased from for a refund. For more information, call Sabra Consumer Relations at (866) 265-6761.
According to Business Insider, this is not the first time Sabra has recalled some of their products. Back in 2016, 57 varieties of hummus were recalled due to a risk of listeria contamination.
The FDA says, "the most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating a contaminated product. Most people recover without treatment."
