What’s the problem?
July 18, 2018 – Hy-Vee said on Tuesday that it would recall the pasta after at least 20 customers reported becominging violently ill after eating its store-brand spring pasta salad, according to CNN. Affected products were sold in 8 states, including Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, and Wisconsin.
The recall affects 1 and 3-pound containers of Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salad, which were produced from June 1 to July 13, 2018, with an expiration date range between June 22, 2018, and Aug. 3, 2018.
“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.
