Sabra brand hummus recalled due to Listeria concerns

News staff | posted Monday, Nov 21st, 2016

Health Canada has issued a product recall on certain brand of hummus.

Sabra Canada Inc. says all brands of hummus with best before dates up to and including January 23, 2017 are being recalled due to concerns over Listeria monocytogenes.

The recall coincides with a similar one in the United States where Listeria was found at the manufacturing centre but not in any of the products tested.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products, said the Health Canada statement.

The recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

Food contaminated with Listeria may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness. In severe cases of illness, people may die.
