Sabra Dipping Co. has ran afoul of the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development. During routine inspections, they found contaminations by Listeria monocytogenes. Samples of the prepackaged product were tested and with the results, Michigan official alerted Virginia officials and the USDA, who are now working with the company. The recall has been limited to five stock units of Sabra’s classic Hummus.
The CDC states that Listeria comes from Listeriosis, a serious infection usually caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes, is an important public health problem in the United States. The disease primarily affects older adults, pregnant women, newborns, and adults with weakened immune systems. However, rarely, persons without these risk factors can also be affected.
