Lansal Inc. voluntarily recalled over seven tons of hummus across the United States due to a possible listeria contamination, the Food and Drug Administration announced in a press release Thursday.

The dips were pulled from Target, Trader Joe’s and Giant Eagle stores. Listeria is a type of bacteria that primarily affects pregnant women, babies, adults with weakened immune systems and the elderly. It causes fever, muscle aches and gastrointestinal problems. It can be deadly, according to the Center for Disease Control.

The recalled brand names include Archer Farms, Giant Eagle, Tryst and Trader Joe’s in-house label.

There have been no reported illnesses yet.
