Check Your Fridge: There’s a Hummus Recall – Valerio Farris

Earlier this week, the company behind Sabra hummus issued a voluntary recall on some of their products after salmonella was detected during a routine checkup. In coordination with the FDA, the Sabra Dipping Company, LLC, is recalling about 2,100 cases of their 10-ounce Classic Hummus. A single tub was found to contain potential traces of the bacteria. But before you toss all your Sabra products to the wayside, here are a few important things to know.

  • The recall is limited to a very specific product. This product is Sabra’s 10-ounce Classic Hummus with the UPC code 300067 produced on Friday, February 10, 2021, between 6:00 p.m. and midnight with a “best before” date of April 26.
  • This product was distributed to only 16 states: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Indiana, Mississippi, Maine, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, New Jersey, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.
  • If you have purchased the recalled hummus, we advise throwing it out or returning it to where it was purchased.
  • To obtain a refund for the recalled hummus, you can visit this Sabra recall portal and enter the relevant information.

According to the FDA report, the consumption of food containing salmonella bacteria can cause salmonellosis, which may lead to diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating a contaminated product. Most people recover without treatment, but we recommend contacting a health care provider if you’re worried about illness.
