EUGENE, Ore. (KMTR) –- Eugene police made a disgusting discovery Tuesday morning during a drug bust at a home on West 18th Avenue. Officers said they found rodent feces and a dog living at a residence where Jerusalem House Hummus is made.
Inside the home, police said they found stolen property and items related to the sale and use of methamphetamine. 50-year-old Roy Ouesis, a relative of the owner, was arrested on several drug and theft charges.
The Oregon Department of Agriculture said the company owner is voluntarily recalling the product. There isn't a health concern, like salmonella, but health investigators said they aren't confident the product was made in a clean and safe environment.
Eight Market of Choice stores, including locations in Eugene, Corvallis, Portland and Ashland - as well as Friendly Street Market, Sundance, Capella and First Alternative in Corvallis sold the hummus; anyone who purchased the product should throw it away or return it to the store where it was purchased.
