Hy-Vee Recalls Garden Salad For Possible Cyclospora Contamination

Hy-Vee stores is recalling its garden salad after its supplier, Fresh Express, told them of possible cyclospora contamination. The FDA has listed this product as potentially linked to a multistate cyclospora outbreak that has sickened at least 76 people in 6 midwestern states. However, the recall notice states that “Hy-Vee has not received any reports of illness due to consumption of its Hy-Vee Bagged Garden Salad.”

The recall is for 12 ounce Hy-Vee Bagged Garden Salad, with all UPC numbers and expiration dates included. This salad was sold in Hy Vee stores in Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. People sickened in this cyclospora outbreak live in Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, and Minnesota.

Fresh Express sells their own branded salad and produce products, and produces them for other labels such as Hy-Vee.

If you purchased this product, do not eat it. Throw it away in a sealed package inside a garbage can with a tight fitting lid so other people and animals can’t get at it, or take it back to the store where you purchased it for a full refund. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling this product.

If you ate any of this recalled salad, watch yourself for the symptoms of cyclosporiasis, which can take up to a week to appear. Those symptoms include explosive and watery diarrhea, loss of appetite, cramps and stomach pain, bloating, weight loss, fatigue, vomiting, nausea, and low grade fever. These symptoms can persist for weeks or months without treatment, and can seem to resolve, then reappear. Anyone with a weakened immune system or people in high risk groups could have a prolonged illness and may need hospitalization.
