Check it before you dip it! Sabra hummus, spreads recalled over listeria concerns
Sabra dipping company has issued a voluntary recall of some of its hummus and spreads because of possible listeria contamination.
The FDA says the affected products were manufactured before November 8 at a plant where listeria monocytogenes have been found.
Consumers are urged to discard any product with a “best before” date through January 23, 2017 on the lid, as the recall covers the vast majority of Sabra’s hummus and spread offerings.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
Sabra’s other products like Sabra Salsa, Sabra Guacamole and Sabra Greek Yogurt Dips were not a part of the recall.
Symptoms of listeriosis vary, but usually include fever, muscle aches, stiffness, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
