MIAMI (CBSMiami) — A food manufacturer is recalling thousands of pounds of hummus and dip products sold at Target and Trader Joe’s stores.

Lansal, Inc., also known as Hot Mama’s Foods, says they are voluntarily recalling more than 14 thousand pounds of the products due to concern about possible Listeria contamination.

Listeria monocytogenes, is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail, elderly people and those with low immune systems, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Health individuals may suffer only short-term systems like high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, and diarrhea.

Listeria infections may cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women, according to the FDA.

Some of the recalled items include Target Archer Farms Traditional Hummus, Trader Joe’s Edamame Hummus and Trader Joe’s 5 Layered Dip Small.

Customers who have purchased the recalled items are urged to dispose of it or return it to the store for a full refund.
