Several brands of hummus and dips sold at Trader Joe's and Target are being recalled for contamination. In all, 14,860 pounds of hummus is being recalled according to a release from the Food and Drug Administration.

The Texas Department of Health found a listeria contamination during a routine test of Target Archer Farms Traditional Hummus, and now Lansal, Inc. is voluntarily removing all of their products made at the same facility.

While no one has gotten sick yet, this particular type of contamination is potentially serious for children, pregnant women and the elderly. A release from the FDA says that the organism listeria monocytogenes can cause fever, headaches, nausea, diarrhea and abdominal pain.

Some of the recalled items include Trader Joe's edamame hummus and several varieties of Target Archer Farms hummus. You can look at a full list of items recalled here.

Consumers who have purchased hummus products on the recall list can return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

There are several Trader Joe’s in the valley including the store in Mesa located at 2050 E Baseline Rd, Mesa, AZ.
