Sabra Issues Voluntary Recall of Hummus Products

Sabra Dipping  Company Issues Voluntary Recall Of  Hummus Products

Sabra Dipping Co., LLC is voluntarily recalling certain hummus products made prior to November 8, 2016 due to concerns over Listeria monocytogenes, which was identified at the manufacturing facility but not in tested finished product. The recall includes Sabra hummus and spreads.  These products were distributed to retail outlets, including food service accounts and supermarkets, in the U.S. and Canada.

Consumers with any product that indicates a “Best Before” date up through January 23, 2017 are urged to discard it. Consumers can find code and “Best Before” date on the lid of each package.

Listeria monocytogenes is a pathogen of the GI tract. Infants, adolescents, elderly, and those with immune disorders are more likely to develop serious complications.  Listeria can cause stillbirths and miscarriage if the mother contracts it when pregnant. Healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as fever, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Listeria is capable of growing even in refrigerated control.  It can take up to 21 days to develop symptoms after contracting Listeria.

Sabra is voluntarily issuing this recall out of precaution. To date, there have been no reports of illness as a result of consuming the recalled products.
