First of all, kudos to Hy-Vee in taking the necessary steps to recall this before the manufacturer recalls it and puts it at a higher risk! According to a press release from The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) Hy-Vee is voluntarily recalling its Spring Pasta Salad due to potential that it could be contaminated with Salmonella.

Seven cases of Salmonella Sandiego infection have been identified in Minnesota as part of this outbreak, along with 20 other people falling ill in South Dakota, Nebraska and Iowa.

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. The product comes in a plastic container with a plastic lid. The expiration date range is between June 22, 2018, and August 3, 2018.

People infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Other pasta salads sold by Hy-Vee are not currently known to be affected.

Customers who purchased this product should dispose of it or return it to their local Hy-Vee store for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Hy-Vee Customer Care representatives 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 1-800-772-4098.
