Sabra hummus contaminated with listeria recalled

A New York-based company is recalling their hummus products distributed in the U.S. and in Canada due to concerns that they may be contaminated with listeria bacteria, a report of USA Today stated on November 21.

According to reports, a voluntary recall was issued by Sabra Dipping Co. on some of their hummus products after Food and Drug Administration agents detected listeria bacteria in their food processing facility. The recall was issued even after the FDA reported that traces of listeria were not found in the finished products. Sabra received no notifications of incidents of injuries or illnesses linked to the affected hummus products before the recall was issued. A food recall is not new to Sabra; they also recalled their products last year due to the same problem.

Listeria bacteria can cause serious or deadly illness for children, the elderly, and people with weak immune systems.
