If You Shop at Trader Joe’s, You’ll Want to Read About this Hummus Contamination

Recalled hUmmus

Bad news hummus lovers. A batch of 14,800 pounds of hummus products are belong recalled due to a possible listeria risk. The voluntary recall was announced earlier this week after Texas health officials discovered the risk of contamination in Target Archer Farms Traditional Hummus.

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria that can be spread through the consumption of contaminated food. Listeria can cause serious infection and even death in the young and elderly and those with weaker immune systems.

While no illness has yet been reported, consumers who have bought hummus products on the recall list can get a full refund at their place of purchase. Some of these products can be found at large chains like  Trader Joe’s, Target and Giant Eagle.
