FDA test leads to Sabra hummus recall for Salmonella risk
According to a news report on foodsafetynews.com, the Sabra Dipping Co. LLC has issued an urgent recall concerning its 10-ounce “Classic Hummus” tub products after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration discovered Salmonella contamination in a product sample. The affected 10-ounce “Classic Hummus” tubs were distributed in sixteen states. The Sabra Dipping Company’s recall notice was published on the FDA’s website.
The concern is that the recalled products have a long shelf life, and consumers who have purchased the products may not become aware of the issue and become sick. The affected 10-ounce “Classic Hummus” tubs have a “best-before” date of April 26, 2021, and have a UPC number of 300067. Purchasers can determine if the products that they have purchased are part of the recall.
The recalled lot of 10-ounce “Classic Hummus” tubs were distributed in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Indiana, Mississippi, Maine, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, New Jersey, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.
Customers who purchased the recalled products may contact Sabra consumer relations for additional information at sabrahummusrecall.com. Purchasers may also return the recalled products at the place of purchase for reimbursement.
Salmonella is an invisible, odorless, and tasteless bacteria that can cause a Salmonella infection in infants, children, and adults. However, according to the Centers for Disease Control, pregnant women, cancer patients, senior citizens, and people with fragile immune systems are more likely to develop a potentially life-threatening illness.
If you or a loved one have consumed the recalled hummus and are suffering the symptoms of a Salmonella infection, seek medical attention immediately. Salmonella infection symptoms may include fever, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea within 12 to 72 hours after consuming the contaminated hummus. Infected people should explain to their healthcare professional about their possible exposure to Salmonella bacteria since special tests will be needed to diagnose salmonellosis. Some individuals do not suffer symptoms and could potentially spread the infection to other people.
