DELAWARE PUBLIC HEALTH URGES DISPOSAL OF HUMMUS FROM SABRA DIPPING CO., LLC


DOVER (April 10, 2015) - Hummus distributed by Sabra Dipping Co., LLC is being voluntarily recalled due to the potential presence of Listeria monocytogenes. No illnesses have been reported to date. The products listed are being recalled because a routine sample collected by the State of Michigan at a retail location on March 30, 2015, tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes. Based on U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recall notices, the Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH) is working to identify establishments in Delaware that may have received the affected product, and ensure that all affected products have been removed from Delaware shelves.

DPH is urging consumers who purchased these products to throw them out or return them to the store where they were purchased. At this time the recall is limited to hummus; no other Sabra Dipping Co., LLC products have been identified as potentially contaminated.

Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

For more information, Delawareans can contact DPH's Office of Food Protection at 302-744-4546, or visit the FDA's website at www.fda.gov/safety/recalls/

DPH, a division of DHSS, urges Delawareans to make healthier choices with the 5-2-1 Almost None campaign: eat 5 or more fruits and vegetables each day, have no more than 2 hours of recreational screen time each day (includes TV, computer, gaming), get 1 or more hours of physical activity each day, drink almost no sugary beverages.
