It seems we didn't have time to forget about their last health problems and we're already bombarded with a new one.
The problem isn't just with one companies hummus - the problem is that Sabra - co owned by Pepsi is perhaps the largest supermarket distributor of Hummus. They are everywhere. They are literally the face of Hummus in the US.
As news keeps coming out about their products being dangerous to human consumption for various diseases - it will slowly create an illusion as if Hummus itself is dangerous and perhaps that will hurt the entire image of hummus as being something healthy.
I think it's really sad Sabra is having so much troubles that will hurt not just supermarket hummus - but hummus in general.
People will ask more questions about why Hummus keeps getting all these sicknesses.
I hope the people at Pepsi and Sabra aren't thinking to themselves lets just pump Sabra Hummus with more preservatives that will kill what's left of healthy products in their Hummus cause that's not the solution.
I have eaten at so many restaurants hummus with no preservatives that had no listeria.
The solution is to have more quality control during manufacturing.
I hope they fire top level executives cause it's obvious someone's not doing their job at that company.
Every major news outlet has written about it - from foxnews to CNBC.COM - so everyone is hearing how dangerous Sabra Hummus is once again.
Anyways, below is the article about the listeria fear and which products are in danger of being infected:
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. Healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. The company is issuing this recall out of an abundance of caution.
Consumers with any product with a “Best Before” date up through January 23, 2017 are urged to discard it. Consumers can find code and “Best Before” date on the lid of each package.
