Listeria Contamination Continues To Prompt Product Recalls

April 9, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has confirmed that the dangerous, potentially lethal, bacterium listeria has tainted food products from two different companies, causing deaths and illnesses in two states and prompting recalls. Sabra Dipping Company recalled 30,000 cases of hummus after several listeria-contaminated tubs were found in Michigan, though no illnesses were reported. CDC said tainted Blue Bell ice cream led to the illnesses of three people in Texas, and five others in Kansas between 2011 and 2014. Blue Bell has expanded a recall of frozen snack items because of listeria contamination discovered last month.
