Some hummus products sold at Trader Joe's, Target and Giant Eagle are being voluntarily recalled due to a possible risk of listeria.

Food manufacturer Lansal, Inc. announced the recall this week, citing the discovery by Texas health officials of possible contamination in Target Archer Farms Traditional Hummus.

The recall affects more than 14,800 pounds of hummus and dip products, according to a release from the Food and Drug Administration.

No illness has been reported.

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria that is spread through eating contaminated food, causing serious infection and even death in young people, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems.

Consumers who have purchased hummus products on the recall list can return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
