Potential Listeria contamination leads Sabra to recall hummus


The Sabra Dipping Company recalled 30,000 cases of its Classic Hummus April 8 after a random sample tested possible for Listeria monocytogenes, according to Newsweek.

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacterium that can cause listeriosis, an illness that typically results in headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, convulsions, fever and muscle aches. More severe symptoms include miscarriage and stillbirth in pregnant women.

The potentially affected packages of Sabra hummus include 10-, 30- and 32-ounce packages as well as 17-ounce six-packs and Classic-Garlic dual packages. The potentially affected packages are those with expiration dates of May 11 and May 15. Specific information about the recalled lots can be found on Sabra’s website.
