Bakkavor Foods USA, Inc., a North Carolina-based company, announced this week that it is conducting a voluntary recall of its hummus dips sold at Trader Joe’s.
According to the news release by FDA, two flavors of the hummus dips may contain listeria. When consumed, the organism causes listeria infection that is fatal in young, old, and even healthy individuals.
The items included in the recall are Trader Joe’s Mediterranean Hummus (SKU #90642) and Trader Joe’s White Bean & Basil Hummus (SKU #91107). These are sold in 16-ounce plastic tubs and labeled with plant identification code “J”.
The company is advising the consumers to immediately dispose the affected items or return them to Trader Joe’s for a full refund. Currently, no illness related to the issue has been reported to FDA.
