Sabra recalls hummus amid listeria contamination fears

The affected products were distributed at retail outlets in the United States as well as the adjacent nation of Canada.

Consumers are urged to throw out any product with a best-before date through January 23, 2017.

None of the products came back positive for the bacteria, but the company said the recall is being issued "out of an abundance of caution". According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Listeriosis has been known to cause serious and sometimes fatal infections, particularly in the elderly, younger children, and those who have weakened immune systems. Symptoms of the bacterial infection include stiff neck, fever, which may follow with diarrhea. In April 2015 Sabra recalled 30,000 cases due to possible Listeria contamination.

The recall affects hummus spreads made before November 8, 2016. The statement urged customers with the products to throw them away.
