The affected products all have plant identification code C on them. Similar products with plant identification code J are not affected.
Trader Joe’s Mediterranean Hummus Snack Pack with Pita Chips (SKU #97136) is not part of this recall.
The Mediterranean hummus was also sold in 18 other states, while the bean and basil hummus was sold in 29 other states, the company said.
The company said in a statement that it was alerted by a hummus supplier that the products have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
The potentially affected products that were still in stock when the problem was discovered have been removed from store shelves and destroyed.
If you purchased any of the affected products with the specified plant identification and date codes, throw away the product or return it to any Trader Joe’s for a full refund.
