Sabra Hummus Listeria Recalls

In November 2016, Sabra recalled most of its hummus with “Best By” dates on or before January 23, 2017 due to a risk of food poisoning with Listeria monocytogenes.

In April 2015, Sabra recalled a limited amount of hummus after a finished sample of Sabra Classic Hummus that was purchased at a grocery store by health officials in Michigan tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.

What Should I Do?

Dozens of Positive Swabs for Listeria

FDA inspectors found 27 positive swabs for Listeria monocytogenes near food-handling equipment and in food-processing areas of a Sabra hummus manufacturing plant in Virginia. Further testing on one of the swabs showed that it was nearly identical to a strain that prompted last year’s recall.

Listeria “May Be Persistent” In Sabra Hummus Facility

The FDA said findings suggest that Listeria “may be persistent in the production environment.” Once established, Listeria is nearly impossible to eradicate from a food-manufacturing facility. It thrives in cold, wet spots that are commonly found on or around processing equipment.

Finished Products Tested “Every 2 Minutes”

Sabra reassured customers that their finished hummus products are tested from the production line every two minutes for pathogens, including Listeria. Sabra also said the FDA was “expanding their criteria for recalls to include presence of contaminants in the general environment.”

Rapid tests can identify Listeria in 24 hours, but most types of Listeria do not cause illness. It takes another test and up to 5 days to determine if it is the disease-causing strain Listeria monocytogenes. Food-makers rarely conduct secondary tests on equipment in the production environment.

What is Listeria?

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria that can cause severe food poisoning. While still relatively rare, outbreaks are becoming more common, and they are often deadly. Listeria infections often spread to the bloodstream or cause meningitis. According to the FDA:

“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.”
