Food Recall Warning
Message From CEO
We are disappointed to share the news of a voluntary recall with the Sabra community today. We’re recalling this product out of an abundance of caution after finding Listeria Monocytognes at the manufacturing facility, but not in tested finished product.
We have invested heavily in technology and enhancing our processes and protocols, with guidance and input from external experts, to develop and put in place industry-leading food safety procedures, such as testing finished product from the production line every two minutes for pathogens including listeria. We want to reassure our consumers that our procedures include extensive finished product testing, and no products tested positive for contaminants. We are taking action because consumer safety is a top priority.
Subsequent to the inspection conducted with the FDA, we implemented a thorough and extensive factory-wide cleaning and sanitation procedure, and beyond that, we continue to work very closely with internal and external food safety experts to identify any additional steps we can take to even further enhance our efforts.
The FDA and the food industry continue to advance standards and procedures to improve food safety protocols nationwide. In the past, the standard for recalls has been confirmation of a contaminant on actual finished product. In elevating their standards, FDA is expanding their criteria for recalls to include presence of contaminants in the general environment. Working closely with the above mentioned experts, we are striving to exceed that and lead the industry in food safety.
Everyone here is working our hardest to minimize the impact, so we can get back to doing what we love most – bringing the Sabra community delicious fresh foods. The people at Sabra remain committed to producing and delivering great tasting and wholesome hummus made with kitchen fresh ingredients that consumers can enjoy with peace of mind. We encourage you to reach out to us at 866-265-6761 if we can help answer any questions.
