The Cape Gazette reports that public health officials urge customers who bought some brands of Sabra hummus to throw out the product because of possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
No illnesses have been reported to date, said public health officials. The products are recalled voluntarily by Sabra because a routine sample collected by the State of Michigan at a retail location on March 30 tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes. Based on U.S. Food and Drug Administration recall notices, the Delaware Division of Public Health is working to identify establishments in Delaware that may have received the affected product, and ensure that all affected products have been removed from Delaware shelves.
Public health officials are urging consumers who purchased these products to throw them out or return them to the store where they were purchased. At this time, the recall is limited to hummus; no other Sabra Dipping Co. products have been identified as potentially contaminated.
All products have an expiration date of May 11 or May 15. The products are Sabra Classic Hummus 10 ounce with UPC/SKU 040822011143/300067; Sabra Classic Hummus 30 ounce, 040822014687/300074; Sabra Classic Hummus without garnish 32 ounce, 040822342049/301216; Sabra Classic Hummus 17 ounce six pack, 040822017497/301290; Hummus Dual Pack Classic/garlic 23.5 ounce, 040822342209/301283.
