Hy Vee Recalls More Salads For Possible Cyclospora Contamination

Hy Vee recalls more salads for possible cyclospora contamination after Fresh Express announced its recall of salads that contain lettuce, red cabbage, and carrot with its brand name. These twelve newly recalled Hy Vee salads are in addition to the 12 ounce Hy-Vee Bagged Garden Salad that was recalled last week. All expiation dates of the 13 recalled private label bagged salads are recalled.

There is a multistate cyclospora outbreak that has sickened at least 206 people in eight midwestern states. Hy Vee Garden Salad is potentially linked to that outbreak, according to the FDA and CDC.

These recalled salads were distributed to Hy Vee grocery stores in these states: Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin. These salads are all Hy-Vee brand.

They are Southwest Chopped Salad Kit in 13.4 ounce size, with UPC number 6-07450-24669; Shredded Iceberg in 8 ounce packages, with UPC number 0-07545-12053; Veggie Deluxe Salad in 12 ounce packages with UPC number 0-75450-08530; Greener Supreme Blend in 12 ounce packages with UPC number 0-75450-12046; American Blend Salad in 12 ounce packages with UPC number 0-75450-12047; Italian Blend Salad in 10 ounce packages with UPC number 0-75450-12048; and Coleslaw Mix in 16 ounce packages with UPC number 0-75450-12051.

You can see pictures of the products at the FDA web site.

If you purchased any of these products, don’t eat them. Throw them away in a sealed garbage an or take them back to the place of purchase for a refund. Wash your hands well with soap and water after handling these salads.
