Sabra's 10-ounce Classic Hummus is being recalled in the following 16 states: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Indiana, Mississippi, Maine, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, New Jersey, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.

The Salmonella contamination was discovered by a routine screen of a single tub by the FDA, states the report.

The good news? No one has reported any illnesses or even consumer complaint regarding the hummus affected by this recall. That being said, Salmonella is no joke. According to the FDA, "Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis. The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating a contaminated product. Most people recover without treatment. In rare circumstances, infection can produce more severe illness and require hospitalization. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact their health care provider."

If you have this hummus at home, do not consume it. Discard it immediately or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. You can also visit SabraHummusRecall.com for product reimbursement. Consumers can contact Sabra Consumer Relations at 1-866-265-6761 for additional information Monday through Friday from 8am to 8pm EST.
