The Sabra Dipping Company has been forced to recall 30, 000 cases of its signature Hummus dip due to a listeria contamination fear.
This is terrible news for the Israeli owned firm which has been the object of attempted boycotts by groups who are opposed to Israel.
The company described this as a voluntary recall, specifying that so far there have been no reported cases of anyone getting sick from its Hummus.
The tainted dips were discovered in Michigan last month by officials from the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development during a random check at a local market.
They were sent for testing to the FDA.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism, which 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.
