Beacon Transcript – This week has seen a series of product recalls as Sabra has announced that it will be recalling some of its hummus goods and Wayne Farms is calling back ready-to-eat chicken-based products.
Sabra Dipping Inc. is a company famous and appreciated for its dipping products. Now, one of this products may suffer in sales as the company has issued a voluntary recall.
The product recalls are targeting hummus items with a production date listed for before November 8, 2016.
As such, consumers that own goods with a Best Before date listed up to January 23 are strongly advised to discard them.
The now-recalled hummus products were distributed and sold in retail outlets such as supermarkets and food service accounts in both the United States and Canada.
The cause of the hummus products recalls was the fear of a possible listeria infestation. Although no finished products tested positive for the listeria test, the facility in which they were produced revealed the presence of the bacteria.
Sabra Hummus products to be recalled include the Classic, Garlic, Pine Nut, red Pepper and various other types.
However, the recall does not include the Sabre Organic Hummus, Sabra Guacamole, Sabra Greek Yogurt Dip, or the Sabra Salsa.
Besides the Sabra Hummus various products, no other company products have been affected. Interested consumers can find the whole product recalls list on the Sabra website. Affected users can also contact the company and ask for a refund.
The United States Food and Drug Administration or FDA is aware and supports the recall which has decided upon as an extra precaution movement.
Another recall has been issued by the Wayne Farms LLC. establishment as it is calling back an estimated number of 4,059 pounds of chicken products.
The Oakwood, GA-based company is issuing a product recall of its ready-to-eat chicken products in the fear of undercooking.
An undercooking of the products could imply that bacterial pathogens which are usually killed during the aforementioned process are still present in the product.
The Wayne Farms product recalls were issued after the Friday announcement of the problem issued by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service or FSIS.
The ready-to-eat grilled chicken items have an August 1 and 29, 2016 production date and include 9-lb foodservice bulk cases with the code 22121.
They also include 22.5-lb foodservice bulk cases with the code 22423. The codes are used to identify the “Fully Cooked Grilled Chicken Breast Fillets” and the “Fully Cooked Flame Grilled Chicken Breast Fillets” respectively.
As the recalled items also bear the USDA mark of establishment number P-45411 and EST.45411, they were distributed to retail stores in various states.
These states include Iowa, North Dakota, Florida, Missouri, and Minnesota. No consumer health reports were registered in relation to these products.
As consumers are advised to thrown away and not to consume any of the aforementioned product recalls, those interested can address their local health provider so as to discuss possible health issues.
