What’s the Problem?
June 21, 2017 – House of Thaller, a Knoxville, Tennessee-based company, is voluntarily recalling its 10-ounce packages of Hummus sold under the following brand names because they may be contaminated with listeria:
- Marketside Classic Hummus with Pine Nuts
- Fresh Foods Market Artisan Hummus with Pine Nuts
- Lantana White Bean Hummus with Pine Nut and Herb Topping
The company said a supplier notified them that one of their ingredients could be tainted with listeria, according to a recall notice issued Monday by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
Affected products were distributed to grocery stores nationwide from April 18, 2017 to June 13, 2017, and in Canada on April 20, 2017.
Consumers who purchased any recalled hummus should not eat it and discard it immediately or contact House of Thaller for a refund.
To date, no infections or illnesses have been associated with the hummus recall.
