Hi! Does anyone know why Lidl hasn't had their normal hummus for the past month since the recall?

Most should have received houmous from an alternative supplier. My local one usually receives 3 cases a day, but it is only original flavour. Have you asked anyone working there?

Thanks! Nope, will do though!
Apparently they use same suppliers as Morrison’s, who had withdrawn all their hummus due to a salmonella outbreak

Food is in the system far longer than you think.
I was once given a pack of super market millionaire shortbread. The small chunks you get in clear box for about £2.
These normally have about a week use by date. However direct from the manufacturer, it had a 3 week best before date.

When food is prepped, the pipeline of stock takes time to filter through to the consumer. If production was shut down for investigation, cleaning and resolution. There could have been none made for 2 weeks, while everything in the supply chain would have been destroyed. A month would sound about right.
