Sabra Dipping Company recalls about 30,000 cases of its Classic hummus Products
The United States-based Sabra Dipping Company has announced that it is going to recall approximately 30,000 cases of its classic hummus products. According to the company, it has found that a number of samples were contaminated with listeria.
According to reports, several samples of Sabra's classic hummus products were discovered contaminated with listeria at the company's Michigan plant. Listeria was discovered during a routine testing by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD), the reports further stated. After discovering listeria, the officials alerted inspectors in Virginia and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Currently, they have been working to resolve the problem.
At present, the recall by Sabra is limited to select packages of the classic hummus products that are currently in the supermarkets. According to the company, there have been no reports about anyone becoming ill due to consuming the products from the batch contaminated with listeria.
As per the reports, those who have any of the products that are contaminated with listeria in their possession can return it for a full refund. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), if anyone has contaminated product in possession, then the individual must wash contaminated areas. If the product is opened, then it should be sealed before throwing it away, CDC advised.
The reports stated that it was the first case of listeria contamination. Earlier, Blue Bell announced recalling of its products due to listeria contamination. As per CDC, "Listeria can be potentially deadly to the very young, the elderly, those with a compromised immune system and pregnant women".
According to doctors and health experts, if an individual experiences symptoms like muscle cramps, stomach cramps, fever, diarrhea and fever after eating a tainted product, then the person must visit ER.
