Hummus products sold in the US and Canada recalled due to listeria risks

Posted on November 22, 2016 9:45 am under Food Defects

Federal authorities in the U.S. recently said that a recall has been issued to several hummus dips from one company due to fears that they may contain harmful listeria, a November 21 article in USA Today reported.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the recall affects the hummus products of Sabra Dipping Co., sold in the U.S. and in Canada. The recall was issued after the FDA detected the harmful bacteria at a production facility of Sabra. FDA told reports that the listeria was not detected in the finished products. The recalling company and FDA have not received any complaints of illnesses linked to the possibly contaminated hummus dip. Young children, the elderly, and those with otherwise weakened immune systems are at high risk of suffering serious or fatal illness if they accidentally consume food contaminated with listeria.
