The makers of Sabra hummus are recalling 30,000 cases of its Classic Hummus due to possible contamination by the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes.
Sabra Dipping Co., LLC announced the voluntarily recall of the product in the United States on Wednesday.
Foster’s Food Fair IGA issued a press release on Thursday morning stating that none of the affected containers of hummus had been shipped to its supplier. While Foster’s Strand and Republix stores carry Sabra Classic Humus 10 ounce package, the stores did not have any of the affected products, which have use-by dates of May 11 and May 15.
To date, there have been no reports of hummus with the bacterium making anyone ill.
According to the manufacturer, the potential for contamination was discovered when a routine, random sample collected at a retail location on March 30 by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.
