Hummus sold at Trader Joes and Target recalled

Prepared-foods manufacturer Lansal announced a recall Thursday of 14,860 pounds of hummus and other dip products from stores that include Target and Trader Joe’s, due to a threat of a listeria contamination.

The Massachusetts-based company said the recall was only a precaution. A list of the recalled products can be found at: seati.ms/1lYTClz.

Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and those with weakened immune systems.

Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled hummus products are asked to dispose of them or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Consumers with any questions may call toll free 877-550-0694 from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week.
