Say it ain’t so: Sabra is voluntarily recalling about 30,000 cases of its Classic Hummus due to a possible Listeria contamination.

Add it to the list. Amy’s Kitchen and Blue Bell Ice Cream both recently recalled products out of Listeria concerns, and Wegman’s recalled nectarines, peaches, plums and pluots for the same reason last summer.

Why is this such a big deal? Listeriosis has especially scary consequences for pregnant women: miscarriage, premature delivery, newborn infection and stillbirth. Additionally, it can cause fatal infections in young children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems. But usually, a brush with _Listeria monocytogenes _just means an unpleasant bout of food poisoning.

While there have been no accounts of illnesses linked to the hummus, Sabra detected the possible contamination during a routine, random test on March 30. Only the Classic Hummus is affected, denoted by these SKU numbers:

040822011143 / 300067 — Sabra Classic Hummus 10 oz

040822014687 / 300074 — Sabra Classic Hummus 30 oz

040822342049 / 301216 — Sabra Classic Hummus without Garnish 32oz

040822017497 / 301290 — Sabra Classic Hummus 17oz Six Pack

040822342209 / 301283 — Hummus Dual Pack Classic/Garlic 23.5oz

If you have one of these products, you can return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
