WOODBRIDGE, Ontario — Summer Fresh Salads Inc. is recalling its "Wegmans Harissa Hummus Topped With Harissa" because it may contain undeclared sesame.

People who have allergies to sesame run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recalled Wegmans Harissa Hummus Topped With Harissa was sold in select Wegmans stores in Washington D.C., Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia between January 29 and February 2, 2024.

The product comes in a 10.5 ounce (298 g), clear plastic package with top, side and bottom labels marked with lot # 240239 and lot # 240309 with an expiration date of 03/19/2024 and 03/26/2024 stamped on the side label.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The recall was initiated when it was determined the sesame-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of sesame. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a labelling error.
