Recalled Hummus and Dip Could Pose Listeria Risk


WebMD News from HealthDay

May 23, 2014 -- Nearly 15,000 pounds of hummus and dip products are being recalled by Lansal, Inc. due to possible contamination with listeria bacteria, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young, frail and elderly people.

The company has told wholesalers and retailers to halt sales of all the recalled products sold under brand names such as Target Archer Farms, Giant Eagle, Trader Joe's and Tryst. No illnesses have been reported, according to Lansal.

The company said that people with the recalled hummus and dips should either throw them out or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

For more information, call Lansal at 1-877-550-0694 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. EST seven days a week.
