September 26, 2019 – At least 9 people in Maryland have been diagnosed with salmonella infections after eating at the same restaurant chain, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Trader Joe’s Hummus Recall

December 2, 2016 – Trader Joe’s recalled 2 kinds of hummus over potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

Both products recalled — Mediterranean Hummus and White Bean & Basil Hummus — were made by Bakkavor Foods USA, Inc., according to the FDA recall notice.

The hummus was distributed to Trader Joe’s stores in California, Washington, Texas and other states. Affected products contain “use by” dates up to and including Dec. 15, 2016, and a plant identification code “C.”

The potential for contamination was detected after tests revealed the presence of listeria in products manufactured on the same equipment. Bakkavor identified the source and removed affected products from store shelves, according to the FDA.
