Hy-Vee has voluntarily recalled its Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salad due to possible salmonella contamination.
The grocery chain says the potential for contamination was brought to its attention last night when about 20 illnesses in Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Iowa were potentially linked to customers who had eaten the salad.
The recall includes Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salads in both 1 pound (16 oz.) and 3 pound (48 oz.) containers produced between June 1, 2018, and July 13, 2018, and available from the deli service case.
A news release from Hy-Vee stated, "the pasta salad was distributed to all of Hy-Vee’s 244 grocery stores across its eight-state region of Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The product comes in a plastic container with a plastic lid. The expiration date range is between June 22, 2018, and Aug. 3, 2018. The expiration date can be found on the side of the container."
