On Tuesday, July 15, Pita Pal Foods announced they are recalling nearly 80 types of hummus out of an abundance of caution due to possible Listeria contamination.
Listeria monocytogenes was identified during an FDA inspection at the manufacturing facility (not the finished product).
The products, which are labeled under 10 different brand names, were distributed to retailers nationwide and to the United Arab Emirates. Affected brands include Bucee's Fresh Thyme, Harris Teeter, Lantana, Pita Pal, Reasor's, Schnucks, and 7-Select; some of which may be sold at both Walmart and Safeway in Page.
Consumers who purchased the affected products are being urged to throw the items away or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
No illnesses have been reported so far for these products.
Listeria can cause symptoms that include high fever, severe headache, confusion, a loss of balance, muscle aches, stiffness in the neck, convulsions, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Pregnant women typically experience flu-like symptoms, but the infection may lead to miscarriage, stillbirth, or premature delivery.
