FDA Weighs In On Hy-Vee Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Recalled Salads; Lawsuits Possible

The FDA has weighed in on the Hy-Vee Salmonella outbreak linked to recalled Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salads. At least 21 people in five states have been sickened in this outbreak. Five people are hospitalized because their illnesses are so serious.

Hy-Vee Salmonella Outbreak

The case count by state is: Iowa (8), Minnesota (7), Missouri (1), Nebraska (4), and South Dakota (1). The patient age range is from 5 to 89. Illness onset dates range from June 23, 2018 to July 3, 2018.

The FDA first learned about this outbreak on July 16, 2018. The FDA, CDC, and state partners started investigating this outbreak and identified Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salad as a possible source of these illnesses. On that same day, Hy-Vee removed the Spring Pasta Salad products from all of its 244 stores located in llinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. A recall was issued on July 17, 2018.

The recalled pasta salad was sold in one and three pound, pre-packaged deli containers at all Hy Vee stores. It was also available for sale at the deli counter in custom quantities. If you have purchased this salad, do not eat it. Discard it in a sealed container, or take it back to the place of purchase for a refund. Wash your hands well with soap and water after handling this salad.

Experienced Salmonella lawyer Fred Pritzker, who represented many clients in the Salmonella outbreak linked to recalled Fareway Foods chicken salads earlier this year, said, “No grocery store should sell any product that is contaminated with enough bacteria to make someone sick. These patients are ill and suffering through no fault of their own.”

The symptoms of salmonellosis include fever, abdominal and stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea that may be bloody. If you have eaten this recalled salad and have been sick with these symptoms, you may be part of this Hy-Vee Salmonella outbreak. See your doctor for help.
