Hy-Vee supermarkets recalling potato salad due to possible contamination
(Gray News) - A supermarket chain with multiple stores in the Midwest reports it is recalling its potato salad products ahead of the holiday weekend.
According to a news release, Hy-Vee is voluntarily withdrawing all potato salad varieties due to a presumptive positive microbial test result from the line where the potatoes were processed as of July 1.
The recall includes Hy-Vee potato salad and Mealtime potato salad products.
The company reports while final test results are not expected for about 7-10 days, due to the holiday weekend, Hy-Vee elected to withdraw all of those products pending those test results.
The voluntary withdrawal includes all varieties and sizes of Hy-Vee potato salads available from grab-and-go refrigerated cases and/or deli service cases. The recall covers the company’s eight-state region of Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
Hy-Vee representatives said the expiration dates of the products are between July 31-Aug. 4.
The products involved in the recall are below:
- Hy-Vee old-fashioned potato salad
- Hy-Vee country-style potato salad
- Hy-Vee Dijon mustard potato salad
- Hy-Vee green onion & egg potato salad
- Hy-Vee chipotle ranch potato salad
- Hy-Vee diced red skin potato salad
- Hy-Vee loaded baked potato salad
- Mealtime old-fashioned potato salad
- Mealtime country-style potato salad

Hy-Vee urged customers who have purchased any of these products to not consume them and to dispose of them or return them to their local Hy-Vee for a full refund.
Currently, the company said there have been no reports of illness or complaints involving the products but consumers with questions may contact Hy-Vee Customer Care at 1-800-772-4098.
