In an effort to help those of you who are sick and tired of worrying about what foods might make you sick, here's a helpful reminder of what foods have been recalled recently by major distribution chains in Minnesota and across the country.
These foods could give you salmonella poisoning:
Honey Smacks: 15.3 oz. or 23 oz. size, with used by dates between June 14, 2018 and June 14, 2019, don't eat them. The recall affects boxes with the product code 38000 39103 and 38000 14810.
This is a nationwide recall, although no one in Minnesota has fallen ill from them yet.
Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salad: 16oz and 48oz sizes. Don't eat this if it was bought from any Hy-Vee prior to Tuesday, July 17, with an expiration date of Aug. 3. Six people in Minnesota were sickened by it.

Taco Bell Salsa Con Queso Mild Cheese Dip: Kraft Heinz has recalled the 15 oz. jar with best if used by dates of Dec. 27, 2018 to Jan. 23, 2019. The UPC code on the jar is 021000024490. If you eat it a jar that has been recalled you stand the chance of being sickened by a potentially deadly bacteria.
Meanwhile, cyclospora outbreaks have been ongoing from issues with different foods in Minnesota and nationwide, with McDonald's recently pulling salads from its menus in Minnesota due to risk of getting sick.
Kwik Trip's Del Monte vegetable trays were also sickening Minnesotans with cyclospora, which can cause frequent diarrhea, loss of appetite and weight, cramping, bloating, increased gas, nausea, fatigue and low-grade fevers.
All of the above happened during a time in which food poisoning from Romaine lettuce killed two people in Minnesota and sickened hundreds of people across the country.
And if that's not enough, 19 different frozen meals from Aunt Jemima and Hungry Man brands have been recalled due to possible Listeria infections. See all of the specific codes and best-if-used-by dates for those right here.
