Sabra recalls 30,000 cases of hummus over listeria concerns

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) — About 30,000 cases of Sabra hummus sold nationwide is being recalled due to a possible Listeria contamination.

Listeria is a food-borne illness that can cause high fevers and nausea in minor cases, but the infections can be fatal to people with weakened immune systems and young children, along with causing miscarriages in pregnant women.

It is the second listeria-related recall this week. Blue Bell Creameries on Tuesday recalled banana pudding ice cream that tested positive for listeria, expanding an earlier ice cream recall. Eight people in Texas and Kansas have been afflicted by tainted products and three have died.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with the hummus recall. The Sabra Dipping Co. is a joint venture of PepsiCo and Strauss Group.

The recalled products include:

—Sabra Classic Hummus in 10-ounce sizes with UPC/SKU 040822011143 / 300067

—Sabra Classic Hummus in 30-ounce sizes with UPC/SKU 040822014687 / 300074

—Sabra Classic Hummus without Garnish in 32 ounce sizes with UPC/SKU 040822342049 / 301216

—Sabra Classic Hummus in 17-ounce six-packs with UPC/SKU 040822017497 / 301290
