Hummus manufacturing giant Pita Pal Foods, LP just issued a voluntary recall of 87 types of hummus products over concerns of listeria contamination, reports the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The products were flagged as potentially dangerous during an FDA inspection at the company’s Houston, Texas-based manufacturing facility. They were distributed nationwide in the United States and the United Arab Emirates.

Hummus brands affected include Lantana, Fresh Thyme, Harris Teeter, and 7-Select, but we’ve included the full list below. The majority of the products being recalled have “best by" dates between July 21, 2019 and August 30, 2019, but a few have them from November or December 2019.

According to the FDA, “Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.” According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 1,600 people get listeriosis each year, and about 260 die.

The good news? Luckily, no illnesses have been reported at this time regarding these hummus products. Pita Pal Foods has issued the recall solely out of caution.

Consumers who have purchased products listed below with these use by dates are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 888- 671-8858.
