Sabra Recalls Products Due to Health Concerns
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
The popular hummus producer
Sabra has voluntarily recalled many of their products due to a Listeria monocytogenes
concern. The strain was found at the facility the hummus is produced at,
however, not found in the tested finished product. The recalled products
were issued to supermarkets and food service accounts in the United States
and Canada. It was also sent to retail outlets. The company states that
a “Best Before” date through January 23, 2017, products are
effected, and the product should be discarded by consumers. Consumers
are urged to contact the company consumer relations hotline for additional
questions. They suggest visiting their recall website for reimbursement
for the recalled product. A full list of recalled Sabra products can be
found on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration webpage.
People who become sick from a Listeria monocytogenes infection can suffer
from fever, nausea, abdominal pain, diarrhea and severe headaches. This
infection can be serious and sometimes fatal in elderly, young children,
and people with weakened immune systems. This can also be threatening
to pregnant women by posing a risk for miscarriages and stillbirths. All
of these can cause serious issues and may result in large medical bills.
If you have been sickened due to a recalled product, you should always
consult an attorney to discuss your legal rights. A product liability
attorney can determine if a company was at fault for your illness or injury
and help recover compensation for your needs.
