Falafel King of Boulder, Colorado is recalling 10 ounce containers of Hatch Green Chile Hummus because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The recalled Hatch Green Chile Hummus were distributed to retail stores in certain areas of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Nebraska.

The Hatch Green Chile Hummus comes in a 10 ounce clear plastic container with a black-rimmed lid, the UPC #822986-10305-2 printed on the back label and a “Sell By” date beginning 02/14/2014 through 03/16/2014 printed just above the back label where the UPC / bar code is located.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with the product.

The recall was the result of notification by the supplier of fresh green chili that there was a potential for the Listeria organism in the Bueno Foods roasted fresh green chili used in the Hatch Green Chile Hummus. The Falafel King recall was a completely voluntary decision in order to protect the consumers. Falafel King immediately changed its supplier of fresh roasted green chili and now heats the chili to at least 165º F then cools it before adding it to the Hatch Green Chile Hummus.

Consumers who have purchased Hatch Green Chile Hummus with the “Sell By” dates noted in this recall are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the Falafel King Corporate Office at 303-443-1346 Monday-Friday, 9:00a.m.–5:00p.m. MST.

All Annie’s manufacturers have comprehensive metal control programs that include magnets and metal detection devices. Pieces of the fine wire were too small to be detected and could have found their way into the finished product. While no metal has been found in Annie’s finished product, as a precaution, Annie's initiated this voluntary recall. There have been no consumer complaints, illnesses or injuries reported to date.

Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The recalled items were sold from Sept. 27- 28, 2012 from the Kirby location (2955 Kirby Drive, Houston, TX). To date, no illnesses have been reported related to these items.
