The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced a recall of thousands of cases of hummus due to possible listeria contamination.

The FDA announced on Wednesday that Sabra Dipping Co., LLC was recalling 30,000 cases of its Classic Hummus products after regular, random testing at a retail location revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes on March 30. Listeria is a dangerous bacterium that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. Listeria can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women. Listeria can cause an illness known as listeriosis, the symptoms of which include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said in a recall notice posted on the agency’s website.
