Hummus, Dip Products Recalled For Possible Health Risk
BOSTON (CBS) – Several hummus and dip products sold in Massachusetts have been recalled because of a possible health risk.
Lansal Inc., which does business as Hot Mama’s Foods out of Springfield, and makes products for Target and Trader Joe’s, issued the voluntarily recall this week.
According to the recall posted on the FDA’s website, it’s “due to concerns about possible Listeria monocytogenes, an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.”
So far, no illnesses have been reported.
The products, which also include some Archer Farms and Giant Eagle brands, were made at the same facility and distributed to both wholesalers and retailers during the same time.
