Hy-Vee recalls additional bagged salads due to possible Cyclospora contamination

Local News

Hy-Vee is recalling an additional 12 bagged salads due to the potential Cyclospora contamination.

Fresh Express, the company that produces the products for Hy-Vee, announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Center for Disease Control Prevention expanded its investigation into the outbreak of Cyclospora in the upper Midwest, which is the reason for the additional recalled products.

The 12 salads are in addition to the 12oz. Hy-Vee Bagged Garden Salad that was recalled last week.
