Lantana Hummus Recall
June 22nd, 2017
Foster’s Food Fair-IGA would like to announce that the House of Thaller, a Knoxville Tennessee company, is voluntarily recalling selected 10 ounce packages of Hummus with Pine Nut Topping, because an ingredient supplier noted that their ingredient has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
Foster’s Food Fair-IGA locations are affected by this recall; and the affected products have been pulled from the shelves to ensure the safety and well being of our customers.
To date, no illnesses have been reported in relation to this product or recall.
To check your product for this recall, refer to the lot code printed on the top of the cup. The lot code will begin with a “USE BY” date followed by the letter “W” and a 7 digit code. This is the information to reference when checking your product against the recall list.
The products come in 10 ounce, clear, round plastic cups with a clear or colored plastic lid:
• Fresh Foods Market Artisan Hummus, Pine Nuts – clear lid edge (Foster’s IGA does not carry this brand)
• Lantana White Bean Hummus with Pine Nut & Herb Topping – white or beige striped lid edge (Foster’s IGA does carry this brand)
• Marketside Classic Hummus with Pine Nuts – solid black lid edge (Foster’s IGA does not carry this brand)
