Sabra Hummus Pulled From Shelves Over Listeria Fear


Sabra, maker of the nation's top-selling brands of hummus, has pulled more than 300,000 containers of its product from store shelves after samples tested positive for Listeria. The company quickly added that there had been no reported cases of human-traced illness linked to the hummus. The Food and Drug Administration said the recall was voluntary.

The affected tubs of hummus, in containers between 10- and 32 ounces, have the following UPC/SKU codes with best "use by" dates of May 2015:
  • 040822011143 / 300067
  • 040822014667 / 300074
  • 040822342049 / 301216
  • 040822017497 / 301290
  • 040822342209 / 301283
Sabra said consumers can return any affected product to their grocery store for a full refund.
