We wanted to give you all a head’s up about this important recall, because there is a popular product that may have been possibly contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. We love hummus as it is a healthier snack and protein and want to help spread the word to avoid sickness.
They are also sold at very popular nationwide stores, so many thousands could be affected!
