The Minnesota Department of Health has issued a news release linking recent cases of Salmonella Sandiego with consumption of Hy-Vee’s Spring Pasta Salad. The pasta salad was distributed to all 244 Hy-Vee grocery store locations in Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. The pasta salad was available in one- and three-pound pre-packaged forms or available scooped from the deli counter and includes shell pasta, mayonnaise, carrots, celery, cucumbers, onions, and green pepper. Hy-Vee voluntarily recalled the pasta salad after reports that it was linked to illnesses. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has recommended that you either throw out the salad or return it for a refund. The expiration date range is between June 22, 2018 and August 3, 2018. The expiration data can be found on the side of the container.

Hyvee Salmonella Recall

The outbreak has affected twenty-one people in five states. Two of the victims who ate the pasta salad in Minnesota required hospitalization for their injuries. Food-borne illnesses can cause serious injuries and may entail expensive medical bills, lost wages and other costs. Filing a lawsuit may help you recover and send a message to food producers to more carefully monitor their food.

What are the symptoms of Salmonella Sandiego?

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, common symptoms of Salmonella Sandiego include

  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Abdominal cramps

The symptoms usually develop 12 to 72 hours after consumption of a contaminated food product and the illness tends to last 4 to 7 days. Most cases will resolve themselves without treatment. In rare cases, diarrhea may be so severe as to require hospitalization; in those cases, the infection may spread to other parts of the body and cause more serious illnesses. Children, seniors and those with weakened immune systems may experience stronger symptoms from a Salmonella infection.

Salmonella Sandiego may not be the only illness linked to consumption of these pasta salads. Additional illnesses that may be linked to the pasta salad are under investigation.
