[UPDATE May 29:] The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has expanded the President’s Choice hummus recall to include the following products, in addition to the Moroccan-style hummus recalled earlier this week (see below):
[Original post: May 26:] A big hummus recall is making headlines today. Loblaw Companies, Ltd., is recalling their President’s Choice Moroccan-style hummus because it may be contaminated with a toxin produced by staphylococcus bacteria.
The affected product has been sold across Canada in 280-gram containers with UPC 060383133870 and best-before date of June 14. The product is now no longer in stores.
The staphylococcus toxin is not easily eliminated from foods during cooking. No complaints or illnesses have been reported in connection with this recall.
This recall was triggered by a new food safety investigation by the Food Inspection Agency of Canada. As always, the CFIA will notify the public (and we’ll keep you posted) of any more food recalls as a result of this investigation.
If you have this product:
Throw it out, or return it for a full refund. For more information, contact Loblaw Companies, Ltd.: email@example.com or 1-888-495-5111.
