Hy-Vee Recalls Summer Fresh Pasta Salad for Listeria

Hy-Vee is recalling its brand name Summer Fresh Pastas Salad for possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. No illnesses have been reported to date, but the illness caused by this pathogenic bacteria can take up to 70 days to appear.

RecallThe recalled product is Summer Fresh Pasta Salad sold in its stores’ kitchen department cold cases and salad bars. The frozen vegetables used to make the salad were potentially contaminated with Listeria. It is packaged upon customer request from the kitchen col case and would have been in 16 ounce or 32 ounce clear plastic containers. A light tan scale-produced label with the product name, weight, and price would be on the container.

The salad was sold in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, and South Dakota. If you purchased this product between April 9, 2015 and April 27, 2015, do not eat it. Discard it in a sealed container or return to the store where you purchased it for a refund. Then clean out your refrigerator with a mild bleach solution, since Listeria can grow at refrigerator temperatures.

If you ate this product, watch yourself for the symptoms of Listeria monocytogenes food poisoning for the next 70 days. Those symptoms include flu-like illness, with headache, high fever, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Pregnant women can suffer miscarriages and stillbirth, even though their illness is very mild. If you experience these symptoms, see your doctor as soon as possible.
