Read This If You Recently Bought Cedar's Organic Hommus

When it comes to snacking right, you can't go wrong with hummus. According to Healthline, this dip contains antioxidants that might help fight inflammation, provides a solid amount of fiber per serving, and may reduce the risk of heart disease. While these potential perks can get anyone excited to pick up a tub of this spread, sometimes hummus can hide some unwanted ingredients.

The FDA recently announced that Cedar's Mediterranean Foods issued a voluntary recall on Cedar's Organic Mediterranean Hommus after discovering that the brand's 10-ounce tubs contained undeclared pine nuts, a deadly allergen for anyone sensitive to tree nuts. The affected items have since gone out to 23 different states: Massachusetts, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Oregon, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arizona, Colorado, Wisconsin, Maryland, Ohio, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, Missouri, Maine, New York, Kansas, Alabama, Tennessee, and Minnesota. If you have a container of this dip in your refrigerator, you may have some of the mislabeled product on your hands. So far, no one has gotten sick from consuming the product, but as a precaution, the brand recommends everyone to keep an eye out for the product.
