As a precautionary measure, Avoca is recalling the above batches of two additional hummus products that were made on the same day as the hummus and colcannon that were found to contain Listeria monocytogenes (see Food alert 2017.02).  It is not yet known whether these products also contain Listeria monocytogenes, but testing is underway. These products were only sold in Avoca stores where they have been withdrawn from sale and a point of sale recall notice has been displayed. Consumers are instructed not to eat the above batches and to return them to an Avoca store.
