Hy-Vee, Inc., based in West Des Moines, Iowa, is voluntarily recalling its Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salad due to the potential that it may be contaminated with Salmonella. The potential for contamination was brought to Hy-Vee’s attention last night when approximately 20 illnesses in Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Iowa were potentially linked back to customers consuming the salad. The voluntary recall includes Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salads in both 1 pound (16 oz.) and 3 pound (48 oz.) containers produced between June 1, 2018, and July 13, 2018, and available from the deli service case.
The pasta salad was distributed to all of Hy-Vee’s 244 grocery stores across its eight-state region of Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The product comes in a plastic container with a plastic lid. The expiration date range is between June 22, 2018, and Aug. 3, 2018. The expiration date can be found on the side of the container.
Out of an abundance of caution, Hy-Vee voluntarily removed the product last night from all of its shelves and service cases as soon as the grocery chain was notified about the situation.
Customers who purchased this product should dispose of it or return it to their local Hy-Vee store for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Hy-Vee Customer Care representatives 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 1-800-772-4098 .
North 48th and Doris Bair Circle Repair...
Road work has begun on North 48th Street! The potholes are gone but now the road crew will be tearing up, then pouring concrete on the South side of the intersection. This work will take place on the South side on Thursday and Friday and will be barricaded until the construction company and city deem it safe to drive across.
Then on Wednesday, the 25th they will repeat the process on the North side of the intersection. Hopefully this will be finished by the weekend of the 28th.
All of the above is weather permitting of course.
People coming from the South will have an extremely tight turn into Doris Bair Circle and it is suggested that people with larger vehicles go further North to the turnaround near the dump and approach from the North.
