Hy-Vee pulls pasta salad from stores due to potential threat of Listeria monocytogenes bacteria contamination

On Monday, April 27, 2015, Hy-Vee, Inc. issued a recall for Hy-Vee Summer Fresh Pasta Salad sold it it’s store’s kitchen department cold cases and salad bars.  The recall occurred after Hy-Vee was notified that the frozen vegetables, produced by Inventure Foods in Georgia, that are used to make the pasta were possibly contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

According to Hy-Vee, Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems and healthy individuals may suffer short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.  They also said that Listeria can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The Summer Fresh Pasta Salad is packaged upon customer request from the kitchen cold case and would have been packaged in 16oz. (1 lb.) or 32oz. (2 lb.) clear plastic containers. A light tan scale-produced label with the product name, weight and price would have been affixed to the container.

The recalled product would have been available in a limited number of stores between April 9, 2015 and April 27, 2015.

Hy-Vee has since pulled the ready-to-eat Summer Fresh Pasta Salad from its distribution channels and the stores in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska and South Dakota to which it was distributed. All stores that received the product have been instructed to dispose of the product.

Hy-Vee said that to this date they have not received any complaints associated with the Summer Fresh Pasta Salad.

Customers who purchased Summer Fresh Pasta Salad from the Hy-Vee kitchen department cold case or salad bar between April 9, 2015 and April 27, 2015, should dispose of the product or return it to the store for a refund.
