If you're going to be getting together with family and friends where you will be offering up snacks like vegetables, pretzels, bread, chips...anything that would pair well with dip, one item that you may want to avoid offering to your guests is CAVA Spicy Hummus. The product was recently voluntarily recalled by CAVA Foods, Inc. due to the potential for the product to contain undeclared sesame, which is a food allergen. This recall was recently published by the Food and Drug Administration and the summary reports that people who are allergic to sesame run the risk of serious-life threatening allergic reactions if they consume the product.

Does the Recall Pertain to Massachusetts?

The product was sold nationwide and two of the retailers on the list including Whole Foods Market and Mom's Organic Market have locations all throughout Massachusetts. Whole Foods Market has stores in Hadley, Shrewsbury, Arlington, Sudbury, Bedford, Cambridge, Framingham, Newton, Wodurn, Westford, Wellesley, and Boston just to name a few.
