Hummus Might Not Be The Yummus

More than seven tons of hummus and dips have been recalled nationwide due to possible bacterial contamination.

Massachusetts-based food manufacturer Hot Mama’s Foods announced that it has voluntarily pulled several dip products from store shelves due to concerns about possible contamination by listeria, a potentially life-threatening food-borne bacterium. The products included hummus and dips distributed by Target under the Archer Farms label and at supermarket chains Trader Joe’s and Giant Eagle.

Listeria, the company explained, is potentially dangerous to pregnant women and can “cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.” In healthy individuals, short-term symptoms may include high fever, severe headache and diarrhea.

To date, there have been no reported cases of illness.

Consumers have been urged to check the complete list of recalled products.
