Approximately 2,100 cases of Sabra Classic Hummus have been recalled due to possible Salmonella contamination, announced Sabra Dipping Company, LLC. The contamination was discovered after the FDA did a routine screening of a single tub of hummus.

Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, stated the FDA. The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating a contaminated product, they said. Most people recover without treatment however, in rare circumstances, infection can produce more severe illness and require hospitalization. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness, according to the FDA. 

The recall is limited to the 10 oz Classic Hummus produced on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 with the Best Before date of April 26.
