FDA warns – Al Amir Fresh Foods hummus dip products and Tzatziki Cucumber Yogurt recalled due to undeclared sesame, milk

Milwaukie, Oregon-based Al Amir Fresh Foods has recalled its Al Amir-branded hummus dip products and its Tzatziki Cucumber Yogurt due to undeclared sesame and milk, respectively.

Those who live with an allergy or severe sensitivity to sesame or milk are strongly urged against consuming the products to avoid the risk of a major, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction.

Initiated by Al Amir Fresh Foods on January 19, 2024, Al Amir-branded hummus dip products and Tzaiziki Cucumber Yogurt are packaged in round, clear plastic containers and have a refrigerated shelf life of 45 days.

The recall covers the following products with the corresponding
“Best By” dates, all of which were last made available for purchase on January, 17, 2024 at certain retail stores across Oregon and Washington:

  • Classic Hummus Creamy Garbanzo, 8oz.
    •  UPC: 7 55134 12341 4

Officials first took action after learning that its labels for Al Amir hummus have a tahini declaration, but do not indicate the presence of sesame. It was also discovered that the label for Tzatziki Cucumber Yogurt lists sour cream and yogurt in its ingredient list, but does not indicate the presence of milk.

While the company has not received any reports of related illnesses or deaths to date, customers with an allergy or sensitivity to either ingredient are asked to refrain from consuming the products. The items should either be discarded or returned to the point of purchase for a complete refund.
