You may be wondering what to do with any Sabra hummus hanging out in your refrigerator after a nationwide recall.
The dipping company voluntarily recalled many of their products made prior to November 8 once discovering Listeria monocytogenes at a manufacturing facility where the hummus is made. Although no known finished products contain the Listeria, the company is being extra cautious and advising you throw away anything that might contain the seriously-infectious bacteria.
