Sabra Announces Hummus Recall After Listeria Found In Manufacturing Plant

Sabra hummus recall 373x210 Sabra Announces Hummus Recall After Listeria Found In Manufacturing PlantSabra Dipping Co. LLC said it is recalling most of its hummus products that were made before Nov. 8, 2016, over concerns that some of the products could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, a bacterium that can cause serious illness and sometimes death.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said on Friday that the company is voluntarily recalling the hummus products “out of an abundance of caution” after routine testing found evidence of Listeria contamination in one of its manufacturing facilities. The company said that no listeria was found on the finished products that were tested.

Sabra lists about five dozen different products affected by the hummus recall. The affected products were distributed to retail outlets, including food service establishments and supermarkets, in the U.S. and Canada.

Any consumers who have a Sabra hummus product with a “best before” date of Jan. 23, 2017, printed on the lid are urged to discard it.

No other Sabra products but the ones it lists are affected by the recall. The company also makes Sabra Organic Hummus, Sabra Salsa, Sabra Guacamole, and Sabra Greek Yogurt Dips, which are not affected by the recall.

“Subsequent to the inspection conducted with the FDA, we implemented a thorough and extensive factory-wide cleaning and sanitation procedure, and beyond that, we continue to work very closely with internal and external food safety experts to identify any additional steps we can take to even further enhance our efforts,” Sabra CEO Shali Shalit Shoval said on the company website.

When ingested, Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.
