Yorgo’s Foods Inc. recalled all Greek-style foods it makes due to a possible risk of contamination with Listeria monocytogenes, a bacteria that cause serious or sometimes fatal food poisoning illness.

The recall includes Trader Joe’s Cilanto & Chive Yogurt Dip and Trader Joe’s Tahini Sauce.

The recall also includes several flavors of Yorgo’s hommus, baba ghannouj, grape leaves, yogurt dip, tzatziki, taboule salad, tahini sauce, falafel, chickpea salad, bean salad, and more.

No illnesses have been reported. The products should be returned to the store where they were purchased for a full refund.

This problem was discovered after routine testing by the FDA identified Listeria monocytogenes in the processing facility and in 1 sample of “Original Tahini Sauce”

Manufacturing of all foods has been voluntarily suspended while the FDA and company continue to investigate the source of the problem. According to the FDA:

Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.”

The recall involves the following products:
