The product liability attorneys at Breslin and Breslin are reporting that a recall of dozens of hummus products has been issued due to concerns over listeria, according to a company announcement posted on the FDA's website.
Pita Pal Foods, based in Houston, issued a voluntary recall of certain hummus products made between May 30, 2019 and June 25, 2019, the company said.
The brand names of the hummus products include Pita Pal, Bucee's, Fresh Thyme, Harris Teeter, Lantana, Reasor's, and 7-select.
During an FDA inspection, the listeria was identified at the manufacturing facility and not in the finished product.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that could cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, as well as others with weakened immune systems, the announcement said. Healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
If you or a loved one has suffered losses as a result of consuming a hummus product, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages. To learn more, contact the trusted and experienced product liability attorneys at Breslin and Breslin today.
