WASHINGTON (WIFR) – Three brands of hummus are being recalled because an ingredient could be contaminated with listeria.
House of Thaller, a Knoxville Tenneseee company, is recalling certain 10 ounce packages of their Hummus with Pine Nut Topping after they say a pine nut supplier had positive findings of Listeria monocytogenes. To date no illnesses have been reported.
According to the FDA, Listeria monocytogenes can cause fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and people with weakened immune systems. Healthy people can suffer fevers and diarrhea. Pregnant women can suffer miscarriages and stillbirths.
The recalled products were distributed nationwide at various grocery stores from April 18 through June 13, 2017.
Marketside’s Classic Hummus with Pine Nuts, Lantana’s White Bean Hummus with Pine Nut & Herb Topping, and Fresh Foods Market Artisan Hummus – Pine Nuts are all included in the recall.
Products included in the recall will have a lot code printed on the top of the cup. The lot code will begin with a “USE BY” date followed by the letter “W” and a 7 digit code.
