I eat it, but I have only tried the plain, so I don't know about the ones with the lump of seasoning in the middle. No problems.

If you have been eating this with no issues I would keep eating it. Just because a company says they can not quarantee that there is no CC doesn't mean there is. If however it makes you uncomfortable because of the risk, hummus is really easy to make yourself and it keeps well in the fridge for a couple of days.

I love Sabra Hummus and have never had any problems with it!

I made a blog post where I used it in a recipe and got an email from a reader saying some people have had reactions to it. While Sabra is my preferred brand and I have not yet read definitively about others having a reaction to the hummus, I am going to make a note of this in an upcoming post.

Most (99.9%) of companies will tell you that they cannot guarantee that there was no CC as a CYA (cover your bum) statement. They don't want to stick their neck out there on a topic like 'food allergies'.

Sabra is my preferred brand over several others, including Athenos (sp?), that I do have a reaction to from time to time. Glad to hear others are eating it with out many problems!
