People Sickened From Salmonella Tied To Hy-Vee Pasta Salad, CDC says

People Sickened From Salmonella Tied To Hy-Vee Pasta Salad, CDC says

One person became ill in Tennessee who had traveled to a state where Hy-Vee grocery stores are located.

The new research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has shown that chicken is the main culprit for spreading more illnesses which are linked to the outbreaks of foodborne pathogens. Four more states reported ill people: Illinois, Kansas, North Dakota, and Tennessee.

The affected products were sold sold in 1-pound (16 oz.) and 3-pound (48 oz.) plastic containers or may have been scooped at the deli counter into clear plastic containers.

The expiration dates for the recalled pasta salad are June 22, 2018 to August 3, 2018.

On July 17, 2018, Hy-Vee, Inc. recalled its Spring Pasta Salad because it might be contaminated with Salmonella.

The CDC urges consumers not to eat the salad. "If you stored recalled pasta salad in another container, throw the pasta salad away". Contact a healthcare provider if you think you got sick from eating it. Life-threatening complications also may develop if the infection spreads beyond your intestines. Multistate outbreaks comprised of only three percent of all outbreaks reported but accounted for 11 percent of illnesses, 34 percent of hospitalizations, and 54 percent of deaths. These cases can turn deadly if not promptly treated with antibiotics. Salmonella enteric subspecies IIIb has been added to this investigation because two people were infected with this Salmonella strain and with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Sandiego at the same time.

If you ate this salad and have been sick with the symptoms of a Salmonella infection, which include nausea, vomiting, fever, and diarrhea that may be bloody, see your doctor.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and even fatal infections, especially in children five and younger, frail or elderly people, or those with weakened immune systems.
