Sabra Dipping Co. has voluntarily recalled 30,000 cases of its Classic Hummus for risk of listeria contamination. The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development discovered the listeria bacterium in samples of Sabra hummus collected during a routine inspection at a Fort Huron Kroger grocery store on March 30. The department then brought their findings to the FDA, which is now working with Sabra to address the contamination, which affected four sizes of the Classic variety and a Classic/Garlic pack. Before you freak out about your chickpea-spread consumption, though, know that no cases of illness have been reported yet.

Listeria infection is no picnic — symptoms include headache, fever, stiff neck, nausea, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. It can be deadly in children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems. It can also lead to miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. Click through to the FDA's website for more specifics on which packages of hummus to avoid. And, if you're taking a break from the store-bought stuff, why not use this as an excuse to try making your own hummus?
