Another Listeria scare has hit a major brand—Sabra.

The popular hummus manufacturer is telling customers to toss any of its products with a best-before date through Jan. 23, 2017. A random test found the presence of Listeria in the brand’s manufacturing facility, but not in any of its products.

Sabra reps said that customers can ask for a refund if they return the product to stores.

A Sabra press release said that the company’s voluntary recall was issued “out of an abundance of caution.”

The company’s salsa, guacamole, Greek yogurt dips and organic hummus are not included in the recall. A full list of the affected products may be found here.

Sabra also set up a microsite to inform customers.
