If you are planning to add hummus to your list of Memorial Day snacks, watch out.
Food manufacturer Lansal has issued a voluntary recall on about 14,860 pounds of hummus and dip products due to concerns about possible listeria contamination.
The recalled products include hummus sold at Target, Giant Eagle and Trader Joe's.
The potential for contamination was found during a routine test of Target Archer Farms Traditional Hummus by the Texas Department of Health. So far, no illness has been reported.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
Lansal has contacted all impacted retail customers and distributors and asked them to remove the affected product from shelves.
Customers who purchased the recalled products can dispose or return it for a full refund. For more information about the recall, call (877) 550-0694.
