July 12, 2022 — Just before the 4th of July holiday weekend, Hy-Vee pulled all potato salad off store shelves due to a risk of food poisoning.
On July 1, Hy-Vee announced that it was withdrawing all varieties and sizes of its Hy-Vee Potato Salad and Mealtime Potato Salad.
The products were pulled out of stores “due to a presumptive positive microbial test on the line that the potatoes were processed on.”
The final test results were not expected for another 7-10 days, but Hy-Vee removed the products “out of an abundance of caution” due to the upcoming holiday weekend.
Hy-Vee recalled the following potato salad products with expiration dates between July 31, 2022 and August 4, 2022:
- 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
- MEALTIME DIJON MUSTARD POTATO SALAD
The products were sold in the grab-and-go refrigerated cases and deli service cases at Hy-Vee, Hy-Vee Drugstore, Dollar Fresh Market, and Hy-Vee Fast and Fresh convenience store locations in 8 states.
The states include Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
