Pita Pal has recalled 87 types of hummus over potential listeria contamination.

The affected products were made between May 30, 2019 and June 25, 2019 and sold under brands including Harris Teeter, Lidl, Bucee’s, 7-Eleven’s 7-Select, Lantana, Schnuck’s, Roundy’s, Reasor’s, and more. The products were distributed to stores across the US and United Arab Emirates.

Houston-based Pita Pal said it was issuing the recall out of caution after a Food and Drug Administration inspection identified listeria bacteria in a manufacturing facility.

None of its finished products have tested positive for listeria, the company said.
