Sabra Hummus Products Recalled for Listeria Fears

From the WebMD Archives

Nov. 21, 2016 -- Sabra is recalling its hummus products in the United States due to possible listeria bacteria contamination.

The latest recall was announced Saturday and covers products made before Nov. 8, 2016, CBS News/Associated Press reported.

Similar concerns prompted Sabra to recall its hummus products in April of 2015.

Food contaminated with listeria can cause an infection called listeriosis. Most people suffer symptoms such as fever, muscle aches, nausea and diarrhea, but the infection can be deadly in some people, CBS/AP reported.

Those at greatest risk include older adults, pregnant women, newborns and people with weakened immune systems.
