   Yorgo Foods Recalls Various Flavors Of Hommus
by FDA
Posted: Monday, November 13, 2017 at 4:04PM EST

Yorgo Foods Inc of Manchester NH, is recalling select varieties of Hommus and Baba Ghannouj, because they have the potential to be contaminated with 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. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The recalled products were distributed at retail stores in NY and NJ.

The following products come in an 8 ounce (227g), clear plastic package marked with SELL BY: JAN 05 2018 TH on the side of the cup: 
 

  • Yorgo’s FOODS Original Hommus – UPC: 7 56248 10002 5

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

This issue was identified after FDA environmental sampling identified Listeria monocytogenes in the processing environment. The production of the products have been suspended while FDA and the company continue to investigate the source of the problem.

Consumers who have purchased the effected hommus are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
