Sabra recalls hummus amid listeria contamination fears

WASHINGTON (AP) – Some varieties of Sabra hummus are being recalled amid concerns over possible listeria contamination.

The Food and Drug Administration says the voluntary recall announced by Sabra Dipping Co. includes hummus products with a “best before” date of Jan. 23, 2017, or earlier. The products were sent to retailers in the U.S. and Canada.

The FDA says listeria was identified at the manufacturing facility, but not in the finished product.

Sabra says no illnesses have been reported.

Sabra’s organic hummus, salsa, guacamole and Greek yogurt dips are not included in the recall.

Listeria concerns also prompted Sabra to recall about 30,000 cases of hummus last year. The bacteria can be deadly for young children, frail people and the elderly.


The following is from the FDA’s website:

Consumers with any product with 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.
