Prepared Foods manufacturer, Lansal, Inc.( d.b.a Hot Mama’s Foods) has announced it is voluntarily recalling approximately 14,860 pounds of hummus and dip products.
The products were sold at Trader Joe's and Target.
It's due to concerns about possible contamination of Listeria monocytogenes.
It's an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
The potential for contamination was found during a routine test of Target Archer Farms Traditional Hummus (10 ounce) by the Texas Department of Health. No illness has been reported.
Lansal, Inc. has contacted all impacted retail customers and distributors instructing them to remove all affected product from sale and is working with the appropriate agencies including state Departments of Health, the Food and Drug Administration and local authorities.
Consumers who have purchased the below hummus products are urged not to eat it and to dispose of it or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
