(NaturalNews) A healthy alternative to many dips and dressings, hummus, is at the center of a massive food recall. How massive? Seven tons of it have been voluntarily recalled by the food manufacturer Lansal, Inc., after Texas health officials noted possible Listeria contamination in Target Archer Farms Traditional Hummus (1). The recall is now sweeping locations where the hummus is sold on a nationwide level and includes stores like Target, Trader Joe's and Giant Eagle.

According to a Food and Drug Administration press release, they are recalling "approximately 14,860 pounds of hummus and dip products due to concerns about possible Listeria monocytogenes, an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems." (2)
