Public Health Food Safety Notice: Sabra Hummus Recall

MOUNTAIN HOME AIR FORCE BASE, Idaho -- Sabra Dipping Company is recalling certain hummus products due to concerns over Listeria monocytogenes. While the bacteria was not found in the actual product, it was identified at their manufacturing facility.

The Mountain Home AFB Public Health Office confirmed that our installation's commissary carried these products. All affected items have been removed from the shelves.
