Hummus, Trail Mixes Recalled For Potential Listeria Contamination

What do granola, protein bars, hummus, and trail mix have in common? Other than being healthy and delicious snacks, they’re also items that have been recalled due to a massive recall of dried fruits and nuts that are potentially linked to the same processing plant.

We’ve already shared the recall information for grainless granola from Wildway and Trader Joe’s, as well as BulletProof 360 and GoMacro snack/protein bars. Now other recalls have been announced that may be from the same potentially contaminated facility.

There have been no confirmed illnesses from foods that are part of any of these recalls.

The following trail mixes from United Natural Trading have been recalled because they contain dates that may be contaminated.

Hummus products that are part of the recall include products sold under the Fresh Foods Market brand (Harris Teeter), Lantana Foods, and Marketside (Walmart). Check the Food and Drug Administration’s recall announcement for the very long list of possible “best before” dates that may have the affected pine nuts, but they’re broadly between June 19 and Aug. 17, 2017. The products were sold between April 18 and June 13, 2017.

The specific products included are:

Fresh Foods Market: Artisan Hummus with Pine Nuts

Lantana Foods: White Bean Hummus with Pine Nut & Herb Topping

Marketside: Classic Hummus with Pine Nuts

All recalled items were the 10-ounce size, sold in clear round plastic containers. The common link that may have carried the Listeria are the pine nut toppings.

If you have the products, don’t eat them: Contact the manufacturer, House of Thaler, at 855-215-5142. 

The production facility linked to these recalls, Hudson Valley Farms outside of Poughkeepsie, NY, has temporarily been shut down following the potential Listeria contamination.

Listeria is a potentially deadly pathogen, posing a particular danger to pregnant women and their fetuses, children, people with compromised immune systems, and elderly people. Symptoms of infection include a high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
