KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Hy-Vee is recalling Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salad due to potential Salmonella contamination. 

According to a news release, 20 illnesses in Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Iowa were potentially linked to customers consuming the salad. 

The recall includes Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salads in both 1-pound and 3-pound 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 Aug. 3, 2018. The expiration date is on the side of the container.

The pasta salad was distributed to all Hy-Vee grocery stores across its eight-state region: Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. 

According to the news release, Hy-Vee removed the product Monday night from all of its shelves and service cases after learning about the situation. 

According to the Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention, Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young kids, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy people infected with Salmonella often experience:

  • Fever
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal pain

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