GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Hummus lovers could be in for an unwanted surprise, after Sabra announced it would begin voluntary recalls due to listeria concerns.
The FDA said the affected products were manufactured before November 8 at a plant where listeria monocytogenes were found.
Consumers of the popular hummus brand are urged to discard any product with a “best before” date through January 23, 2017 on the lid.
Listeria can cause serious, and sometimes fatal, infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.
Symptoms of Listeriosis vary but can include fever, muscle aches, stiffness, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
