Sabra Dipping Co. is recalling some hummus products and spreads due to concerns about possible Listeria contamination.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the voluntary recall Saturday.

The products were manufactured before November 8 at a location where listeria monocytogenes were found. The FDA says no bacteria has been found in products tested.

Products included in the recall were distributed in the United States and Canada.

Customers are encouraged to discard of any product with a ‘best before’ date through January 23, 2017. The date is listed on the lid of each package.

A complete list of products can be found on the FDA or Sabra websites.

The FDA says Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.

Healthy people may only experience short-term symptoms like a high fever, headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
