BOULDER, Colo. - Falafel King is recalling 10-ounce containers of Hatch Green Chile Hummus and 8.5-ounce Hatch Green Chile Wraps because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The recalled Hatch Green Chile Hummus and Hatch Green Chile Wraps were distributed to retail stores in certain areas of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Nebraska.
The Hatch Green Chile Hummus comes in a 10-ounce clear plastic container with a black-rimmed lid.
The UPC #822986-10305-2 is printed on the back label and the "Sell By" date beginning 02/14/2014 through 03/16/2014 is printed just above the back label/UPC code.
The Hatch Green Chile Wraps are individually wrapped in clear plastic wrap.
The UPC #822986-70205-7 is printed on the front label. There is also a sticker printed with the "Sell By" dates of 02/28/2014 through 02/27/2014 on the back of the package.
The FDA said no illnesses have been reported.
Falafel King, of Boulder, said the recall was issued after the supplier of the fresh green chili said there was a potential for the Listeria organism in the Bueno Foods roasted fresh green chili used in the products.
Falafel King said it immediately changed its supplier of fresh roasted green chili and now heats the chili to at least 165º F then cools it before adding it to the Hatch Green Chile Hummus and the Hatch Green Chile Wraps.
