Lansal, a food manufacturer that sells products under assorted names, has issued a recall of more than seven tons of hummus, according to a Fox News story published May 22, 2014.

The hummus recall is due to concerns of possible listeria contamination. Health regulators were alerted to possible contamination in Archer Farms Traditional Hummus sold at a Target location in Texas. This prompted FDA action and a full recall.

Other stores selling the potentially harmful hummus include Trader Joe’s and Giant Eagle. The recall includes hummus and dip products. A full list of the affected products can be found by clicking here.

No illnesses have been reported yet relating to the recalled hummus. But anyone who purchased an item on the recall list is strongly encouraged to return it immediately to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Listeria can cause fever, headaches, and abdominal pain in adults regardless of present health. Its effect on the elderly, young children and others with weakened immune systems can be even greater. The bacteria can even lead to death in some instances.

Parents and others who have purchased hummus or dips containing hummus from Target, Trader Joes, or Giant Eagle should check the FDA website link above to see if what was purchased is on the recall list. Listeria contamination is not something to take lightly, so consult the Food and Drug Administration web site and protect your family from this potential threat.
