A famous brand of ready-to-eat pasta salad has been recalled after multiple cases of hospitalizations were reported in the recent salmonella outbreak.


The Center for Disease Control has put out an official post advising consumers to refrain from eating the Spring Pasta Salad of the brand Hy-Vee.

The CDC emphasizes that the product should be consumed even if it has not shown any traceable harmful effects on other consumers.

This notice was published in connection with the salmonella outbreak in which at least 79 cases of sickness were reported, out of which at least 18 people are under hospitalization.

So far, the impact of the salmonella outbreak has been detected in nine states including Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Minnesota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Nebraska.

There has been one known case of illness in Tennessee, wherein an individual became sick after visiting a state which was home to a Hy-Vee grocery store.

The infected food had reportedly been distributed and sold in plastic containers of varying sizes, including the one-pound and three-pound packs.

The CDC stated that the salad could also have been filled at deli counters and offered for sale. The main ingredients of the salad are shell pasta, celery, cucumbers, carrots, onion, mayonnaise and green pepper.


It has also been noted by the CDC that the recalled products had expiry dates ranging from June 22 to August 3, 2018.

The CDC has urged consumers to return any purchased packs of Hy-Vee’s Spring Pasta Salad.

In case the purchased salad was transferred into a different container before being stored or consumed, the salad needs to be discarded and the container needs to be thoroughly washed with soap and warm water before reuse.

The CDC has also advised people who suspect that consumption of the salad may have caused them to become ill to immediately contact their doctor.
