The latest listeria recall affects three hummus brands being sold nationwide

As someone whose diet consists almost entirely of hummus and foods dipped in said hummus, the latest recall news has me shaking in my boots.

We're getting pretty damn tired of all our favorite foods getting recalled — it seems like nothing's safe anymore! Foodborne illnesses reportedly increase in summer because bacteria thrive in warm weather, so you can expect more recalls as we get deeper into summer. But it's not just the heat — listeria also thrives in the cold, meaning it can grow in your fridge and even infect other foods through contact. Ugh!

The good news is that no illnesses as a result of consuming the products have been reported yet. Let's hope it stays that way.
