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!

This thread is from 2009.  I don't think Sabra hummus has changed since then, but lots of products might have in 7 years.

 

i think Sabra does say gluten free on it now.  I have used it and am fine.  if you want to, you will always find someone who thinks they had a gluten reaction to any food or drink or even water!   most of the time, they probably have a problem with an ingredient , preparation of food, or something else they ate at the same time.  I even saw someone insist she had a gluten reaction but finally admitted that her whole family had a stomach virus - but SHE had a gluten reaction. Ugh...

I googled this topic because I WAS having a reaction to the Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus. For lunch every day at work I have a bunch of raw veggies (carrots, snap peas, etc) with some Sabra hummus. I was sitting in a meeting and started have a bit of a reaction (brain fog, face twitching, sight/hearing problems). My reactions usually happen 15-20 minutes after eating (which works for that timeline). I assume it had to be the hummus because I don't see the veggies being cross-contaminated and the only other things I'd had that day were some black coffee and some Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Old-Fashion Scottish Oats. :(

Glad no one else has had any reactions, but I just wanted to let everyone know it's probably not 100% safe.

I eat Sabra hummus.  But I think Bob's may be doing sorted instead of  purity protocol oats now.

Yeah is the Scottish one even gluten-free labeled? I know it was not one of the gluten-free options 3 years ago. Try gluten-free Harvest Oats if you want oats and can tolerate them. gluten-free Harvest is actually owned by a celiac family, only oats I source for my bakery in making gluten-free baked goods.  NOPE the scottish is not gluten-free Says on the bag it is made in a facility with wheat. Wait there is a gluten-free one but I had to do some navigating as it did not show up in search results. make sure you got the right bag. -_- I do not think I could trust this company lol

I've thought this was gluten free for years. But sometimes when I eat it I get sick. Thought for a while it might be the garlic but recently tested the classic version with the Nima tester and it came back positive. I know people have differing opinions about Nima but if I get sick sometimes from sabra & nima test=positive,  for me I'll be avoiding sabra from now on. I tested Tribe hummus and it came back negative and didn't get sick after trying it so I'm switching brands.

Yes I recently noticed this influx also, and upon getting some for luncheon I was hosting gluten free I did like you did and tested it, for me it came back gluten free but this was a few months ago. NOW I have seen others talking about this issue hince why I did the test. I have a theory as to the source of CC also, Sabra offers snack packs now with gluten pretzels, oddly the product is not listed on their site but I have found it in stores. I will provide the Walmart link at the end. Good practices should have these done in a different facility but lack of information on this and CC crop ups makes me wonder if some batches from some facilities are made in a shared plant that could be leading to this. I support the nima sensor, and recently started working as brand ambassador for them. I can say it is hyper sensitive, me and others have had it go off on things below 20ppm several times. In my case we later had the offending product lab tested and it came back at 6ppm, this is considered gluten free by FDA standards but will effect those of us that are hyper sensitive. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Sabra-Classic-Hummus-with-Pretzels-4-56-oz/48714443

One day last year I think I had enough hummus for a lifetime. Boom, I was sick of it. It no longer agreed with me and I felt icky afterwards . Maybe me and beans don't get along anymore? But I used to eat sabra hummus by the boatload and it was always ok for me, celiac wise, until then.
