Green Chile Hummus and Wraps Recalled for Potential Listeria Contamination

Falafel King of Boulder, CO, is voluntarily recalling 10-ounce containers of Hatch Green Chile Hummus and 8.5-ounce Hatch Green Chile Wraps because they may have been contaminated with Listeria.

The recalled products 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” dates between 02/14/2014 and 03/16/2014 printed just above the back label where the UPC/bar code is located.

The Hatch Green Chile Wraps are individually wrapped in clear plastic wrap, the UPC #822986-70205-7 printed on the front label and a sticker printed with “Sell By” 02/28 through 02/27 on the back of the package.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with the products. However, due to the time involved in tracing a foodborne illness back to a specific food product, it is impossible to say if any illnesses have occurred.

The recall was prompted by a notification from the fresh green chili supplier that there was a potential for the Listeria contamination. Falafel King immediately changed its supplier and now heats the chili to at least 165 degrees F before adding it to the Hatch Green Chile Hummus and the Hatch Green Chile Wraps.

Consumers who have purchased Hatch Green Chile Hummus or Hatch Green Chile Wraps with the “Sell By” dates noted in this recall are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
