Hy-Vee recalls 6 meat and potato products over salmonella, listeria concerns

The grocery chain has stores in the Twin Cities and southern Minnesota.

If you've been shopping at Hy-Vee recently, you might want to check your refrigerator.

That's because the Iowa-based chain, which has 25 stores in Minnesota, has issued a recall for six meat and potato products.

That's because one of its suppliers, McCain Foods, has found possible salmonella and listeria contamination in its caramelized mushrooms and fire-roasted tomatoes that are used in the products.

The impacted products are as follows:

  • Hy-Vee Bacon Wrapped Cowgirl Chicken Grillers – 8 oz. each. UPC Code 023092600000
  • Hy-Vee Fire Roasted Tomato, Spinach, Mozzarella Twice Baked Potato – 5 oz. each. UPC Code 023755400000
  • Hy-Vee Cowgirl Chicken Griller Patty – 6 oz. each. UPC Code 023100200000
  • Hy-Vee Gourmet Steakhouse Mushroom & Swiss Burger – 6 oz. each. UPC Code 023168400000
  • Hy-Vee Ground Beef Sliders Mushroom & Swiss – 2 oz. each. UPC Code 023164300000
  • Hy-Vee Ground Beef Sliders Mushroom & Swiss – 12 count, 30 oz. UPC Code 023266600000

Hy-Vee says that all the impacted products have a "Best if Used By" date of Oct. 22 or sooner.

Salmonella and listeria can cause serious, potentially fatal infections with young children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems particularly susceptible.

Hy-Vee says that no illnesses to date have been reported in connection with the recalled products.

That said, the recall is being issued "out of an abundance of caution" and anyone who has bought one of the affected items shouldn't eat them. Instead they should throw them out or return them to the store for a refund.
