Additional information:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) recommends that people should not buy or serve, nor should retailers sell any affected Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salads at this time.

The CDC, state and local health officials in conjunction with the US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) are currently investigating a multi-state outbreak of Salmonellosis, the infection caused by Salmonella bacteria thought to be caused in this case by consumption of certain batch/lots of Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salads.

The affected Salads were sold in all Hy-Vee grocery stores in Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The outbreak is known to have sickened at least 79 people from nine (9) states as of August 1, 2018. Eighteen (18) people have been hospitalized; no deaths have been reported.

Epidemiologic evidence indicates that he last reported illness began on July 15, 2018, which was before the Hy-Vee recall. Investigation into this situation is ongoing.

The recalled Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salads were sold in plastic containers weighing either 1-pound (16 ounces) or 3-pounds (48 ounces). Depending on the store, the contaminated Salad products may also have been bulk-scooped at the location’s Deli Counter into clear plastic containers and price-labeled at this time.

Food contaminated with Salmonella bacteria usually looks, smells and tastes normal. There is no way to tell that your Salads have been contaminated. Consequently, if in doubt, throw it out.

If you think you have consumed any Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salads and have been sick, you may wish to seek immediate medical attention, advising your physician or clinic that you may be part of this outbreak.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salads, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the Seafood to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
