According to press reports, D.C., Maryland and Virginia’s health departments have linked at least 33 recent cases of salmonella to hummus served at multiple Moby Dick House of Kabob locations.
Currently, the Maryland Department of Health reports 23 confirmed cases of salmonella, the Virginia Department of Health reports nine cases, and the D.C. Department of Health reports at least one case. The cases have been reported since September 10 in Maryland, according to the MDH.
After Moby Dick voluntarily suspended hummus sales in September, the MDH cleared the restaurant’s Hyattsville, Maryland, plant to resume hummus production October 4.
