March 30, 2021 -- A popular brand of hummus has recalled more than 2,100 cases over concerns they may be contaminated with salmonella.

Sabra Dipping Co. announced the recall after salmonella was discovered during a routine screen of a single tub. The recall only applies to 10-ounce containers of Classic Hummus produced on Feb. 10, 2021, between 6 p.m. and midnight with a “best before” date of April 26.

The affected hummus was distributed to 16 states: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Indiana, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Carolina, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.

No illness or complaints have been reported, the FDA said.

Consumers with questions or concerns can call Sabra at 866-265-6761, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday.

Anyone who has one of the recalled containers should return it or visit www.sabrahummusrecall.com for reimbursement.

Salmonella can cause diarrhea, belly cramps, and fever. Most people recover without treatment. Older adults, infants, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to have a serious illness.
