Sabra Hummus Recall Due to Listeria Risk

Quick: Check the “enjoy by” date on your Sabra hummus! On Saturday, Sabra voluntarily recalled many of their chickpea-based spreads due to a concern for Listeria monocytogenes, which was found in one of its facilities but, thankfully, not in any of the final products yet. Outbreaks like these may cause serious infections, so check their website to see if the hummus you bought is safe or not! To be safe, they advise their customers not to consume certain products with a “best before” date up through January 23, 2017.

Not all Sabra products are affected, so check their website to see whether or not you should consume that tub of hummus in the fridge. You can also contact Sabra to request a refund for the affected food you may have purchased.

We all love grab-and-go hummuses like Sabra’s — they’re lifesavers on road trips or whenever you’ve realized you forgot your lunch at home — but most of the time, we just make our own hummus and dips! Making your own hummus is good for you, good for the environment, and often tastes even better than what you can purchase in the deli aisle. Check out some of our recipes below and make a batch to get you through this busy holiday week.
