KHQ.COM - Food manufacturer, Lansal, Inc. announced on Thursday that as a precautionary measure, it's voluntarily recalling approximately 14,860 pounds of hummus and dip products due to concerns about possible Listeria monocytogenes, an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
