JNS.orgApproximately 30,000 cases of hummus produced by the popular Sabra brand, 51 percent of which is owned by the Israeli company Strauss, have been recalled due to fears of Listeria contamination.

Inspectors with the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) discovered the possible contamination in a routine inspection, according to a MDARD spokeswoman.

Listeria is a food-born illness that can cause high fever and vomiting, and it is especially dangerous to people with weaker immune system, children, and pregnant women. Despite the recall, there have not yet been any reported illnesses from the hummus.
