The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced that a prepared foods manufacturer, Lansal Inc., is voluntarily recalling approximately 14,860 pounds of hummus and dip products over concerns about possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.
The recall covers a number of hummus and dip products sold under Target Archer Farms, Giant Eagle, Trader Joe’s and Tryst brands. The recalled products were packed in plastic containers of varying sizes and marked with use by dates from 15 April to 12 June 2014. They were distributed to wholesalers and retailers nationwide.
The potential contamination was discovered by the Texas Department of Health during routine sampling and testing of Target Archer Farms Traditional Hummus. Lansal Inc. then decided to recall all products manufactured at the same site at the time when the contaminated hummus was in production. No related cases of illness have been reported to date.
