7 tons of Hummus recalled after Listeria concerns
Over 7 tons of hummus have been voluntarily recalled after a Texas Department of Health test due to concerns it may be contaminated with Listeria, according to an FDA news release.
The recall affects product manufactured by Lansal, Inc and distributed via Target's Archer Farms brand as well as Trader Joe's and Tryst brands.
Listeria monocytogenes infection can cause short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea in healthy individuals and can cause more severe and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and people with weakened immune systems. It can also result in miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
