What’s the problem?
The recall affects 16 and 48-ounce containers of Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salad, which were produced from June 1 to July 13, 2018, FDA said. The products were sold at deli service cases in Hy-Vee’s 244 stores in Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
“Out of an abundance of caution, Hy-Vee voluntarily removed the product last night from all of its shelves and service cases as soon as the grocery chain was notified about the situation,” Hy-Vee wrote in a statement.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), salmonella bacteria can cause diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection, and usually lasts between four and seven days.
Anyone who purchased Hy-Vee pasta salad affected by the recall should discard it immediately or return it to the place of purchase for a refund. Those concerned about a salmonella infection should consult their healthcare provider right away.
