JTA — Sabra, one of the country’s largest makers of the chickpea spread, has recalled 2,100 containers of its 10-ounce “Classic Hummus” because of possible salmonella contamination.

The FDA said no consumers have reported complaints so far, and noted the containers had a “best before date” of April 26, USA Today reported Wednesday.

The containers were recalled from Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Indiana, Mississippi, Maine, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, New Jersey, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.

Salmonella poisoning symptoms include stomach cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Sabra previously recalled batches of hummus for listeria contamination in 2015 and 2016. The company, which is co-owned by PepsiCo and Israel food manufacturer the Straus Group, recalled some 30,000 cases of its product.
