Sabra Classic Hummus Voluntarily Recalled

Better stop before you dip your pita in that tasty dish of hummus. If it's Sabra Classic Hummus, there's a chance it's contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, according to a voluntary recall put out by the company.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reports that the recall affects the following Sabra Classic Hummus products:

- Sabra Classic Hummus 10 oz
- Sabra Classic Hummus 30 oz
- Sabra Classic Hummus without Garnish 32 oz
- Sabra Classic Hummus 17 oz Six Pack
- Hummus Dual Pack Classic/Garlic 23.5 oz

According to the FDA, Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.

No reported illnesses from ingesting Sabra hummus have yet to be confirmed. This voluntary recall is for products sold nationwide with a best-by date of May 11 or May 15. All other Sabra products are safe to eat, the company reports.
