First of all, do not panic. Are you good and calm? OK, here are the facts: Sabra is voluntarily recalling many popular flavors of their hummus from shelves across the U.S. and Canada—including classic, garlic, red pepper, and pine nut—due to a possible outbreak of Listeria. Customers are being advised to throw out any such containers of hummus with a best-before date up through January 23, 2017.

I know that's a lot to take in, and no, it's likely not grounds for a lucrative class action suit. But the good news, if you've already eaten a bit of this potentially contaminated hummus, is that none has yet tested positively for the bacteria, so you're not necessarily in for "fever and muscle aches, sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms"! That's what I call a win.
