This is not the first time hummus or ingredients used to make hummus have been associated with a Salmonella outbreak.

  • Also in 2019, a Salmonella Concord outbreak linked to Achdut Tahini sickened at least eight people in four states.
  • A Salmonella outbreak linked to Krinos Foods tahini, an ingredient used in hummus, sickened 16 people in 9 states in 2013.
  • And in 2011, a Salmonella Bovismorbificans outbreak linked to hummus and tahini sickened 23 people in seven states and the District of Columbia.

Symptoms of a Salmonella infection include a fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal and stomach cramps and pain, and diarrhea that may be bloody. People usually start feeling sick about 12-72 hours after exposure to the pathogen. If you have eaten at that restaurant and have been ill, you may be part of this Salmonella outbreak at Moby Dick House of Kabob.
